The Depressed Girl
From her books drifting through the air
for her classmates to refer her homeworks.
Begging for a homework book in the last minute from the class leader,she changed.
From the first one to reach the class
Holding the late comer tag , she changed.
From proudly receiving the topper badge
Waiting in the queue to sign the least scored progress card, she changed.
From performing wonderful dance steps
Being the girl with wrong moves,she changed.
From awesome projects and speeches
To the least confident presentations, she changed.
From group of friends who inspire to study
To the group of failed students, she changed.
From the girl of happiness and satisfaction
To the girl of fear and stress, she changed.
From the good daughter and caring sister
To the aggressive girl, she changed.
From complaining, advising and threatnening
The days passed, seasons changed but her
Problems remained unchanged.
Finally one day the mother found her hanging
Brother fainted, father cried. Friends mourned.
But they never knew she had depression.
Unless her diary was analysed by the mental health professional.
The girl with wonderful dreams was just a pot of ash when they realised their mistake.
Suicide news had special columns in the newspapers but mental health awareness didnot.
Her life, her thoughts, her mental health issues finally her suicide never ended.Another" her " another "home"
The never fulfilled awareness and the increasing stigma made every suicide a murder.
Years passed the fainted brother travelled
Recieved records for organising highest mental health care awarness classes and told let no another " her " loose life.
