weak and tuff

So many people feel that depression is a weakness and don't understand it..even people that are close to you...I've just moved into one of the roughest parts of the city and with that you have to expect hastle..already I've had a run in with a asbo and when it comes to using violence I will if i have to protect myself..you see it's a state of mind not a physical thing..I lose all sense of fear and just react on instinct..anyway someone said how can you suffer with depression when you can do that...it's about time people tried to understand depression as an ilness and not a state of mind.

hey i've heard melancholic people tend to write very well...is that true...I like the way you express yourself especially in poetry. i'm not able to think that deep somehow. Is it because i'm pre-occupied or am I a shallow writer. I wonder sometimes
 
hey, hope u r not offended..i know some of the best writers are a bit pessimistic but they tend to feel life more deeply than the rest of us.
 
pennywise i think you are right in many respects..depression can bring out something good in people but often the melancholic in people is a reaction to life in genral and unfortunatley some make it a prision they can't escape..but for me i found writing a release that helped so much..cheers.
