Rage Turned Inward

16 Oct

This is another re post of a poplar piece I did a few months backs. It’s also a look at where I was and how far I’ve traveled in this journey. If I had to measure from there to here in miles, it would be about 100 miles of travel and I still can’t see my destination yet. 


Do you know me? then shut up.

Teeth grinding and I can’t even see.

Lips pursed tight and thoughts on fire.

Muscles inextinguishable and reality on yield.

I put my hands around the throat of my invisible tormentor and squeeze.


I don’t wanna talk I don’t wanna listen I don’t wanna hear I don’t want you I don’t want me I don’t wanna come I don’t wanna go I don’t wanna feel I don’t wanna see I wanna be mad I wanna hate I wanna kill I wanna be killed I wanna hurt I wanna scream I want it dark I want it cold I gotta go I gotta disappear I gotta run I gotta choke I gotta hit I gotta kick I gotta burst I need to move I need stop I need to pierce I need to stab I need to bleed I need to be tight I need to be left I need to be alone.


The world is safe, all these things are Rage Turned Inward. That is depression.

    You said it all. The pain is often dismissed because unlike physical trauma in which the sinews are torn apart, the bones broken and the blood dripping elicits immediate entry into the emergency room… the suffering of the mind and soul is either ignored or left to wait mercilessly waiting waiting waiting…. the depressed one sinks further into the abyss.

        Depression is pain. I’ve felt it physically at times. I’m glad you republished this piece. It’s one of my favourites.

          Yes, depression is very physical, but not mostly. We can change ourselves by changes are thoughts. I know that easily said, but it very true. I of course haven’t been able to do it fully, but I try.

          Thank you for reading it again.

            Sunlight. That’s my secret weapon. Lots of sunlight.

    I wish I had that picture to be framed in my living room. But you are right my friend that is what this creature called depression is. I will go get some sunlight tommorrow.

      Ms. Mary I can feel when you read one of my pieces.

      Depression is no joke and we need to take it a bit more seriously. I’ll be continuing my efforts to bring this beast into the light.

      Thank you sis as always for stopping by and spending some time with me.

    Yes, Brother Jesus, Depression is pain. Physical and emotional. Physical where you are unable to get out of bed. Sister Truth is telling the truth about that.
