Depression Left a Bad Impression (Daily Word Prompt is Impression)

Depression left a bad impression

of what I thought life and living

was supposed to be,

forever changing me

stealing part of my identity,

robbing me of the person

I was supposed to become.

Depression leaves a bad impression

from the deep dark pain, sorrow and despair

it causes creating a deep lasting

indentation formation

of each depressive episode

pressed firmly into my mind forever.

Depression leaves a bad impression

of the morbid monster it has become,

sadly causing too many lives

to be destroyed and lost to suicide, 

feeling there was no other way

for them to escape the deep dark depths

of unending pain and agony

and devastatingly horrific destruction

of their identity, life and living

that depression destroys

and steals from existence.

Depression leaves a bad impression

due to the stigma and discrimination

of mental illness

caused from the lack

of education and awareness,

understanding and support,

caring and compassion

of many throughout the world,

some living right next door,

friends, family, and more.

Depression left a bad impression

that was only my first impression.

My first impression of depression

has changed to a new impression.

The impression of my depression

has created a new me,

a stronger, more resilient better me,

more compassionate and empathetic,

greatly increasing my understanidng

of my surroundings and of all people

of all varieties and levels of brokeness,

admiring the beauty of their flaws that are not flaws at all,

but are beautiful hues of strength, courage and inspiration.

My depression and my impression

of what I thought life and living was supposed to be,

and who I thought I was supposed to become

was never the person I was ever supposed to become,

because the person I am today,

is the person I was always meant to be.

I am who I am supposed to be,

how God planned me to be,

how He formed me to be.

I am who God always fully intended me to be,

just the way I am right now,

at this very moment in time,

beautiful flaws and all.

My impression of depression

has become a good impression.

becasue I have learned to appreciate

each and every moment of my life,

and my every breath of life,

everyday of my life,

one moment at a time.
