The monster inside me
Claws at my skin
Waiting to be free
It eats away at my soul
And grows stronger every day
Until it has finally overpowered me
And I am no longer myself
I am the monster inside me
I recently heard about the tragic death of Stephen Boss who was more popularly known as tWitch. His death was a result of suicide. I remember seeing him on The Ellen Show all the time and had no idea he suffered from depression or any other mental health problems. However, that is absolutely what depression is like. Often we don’t realise a person is suffering until it’s too late. I hope everyone can take a minute to really check in on friends and family to make sure they are okay. Because you never know who is struggling. My heart goes out to tWitch’s wife and children because depression/suicide does not just effect the victims it effects everyone around them too.
I suffer from depression myself and there have been times when finding a reason to stay alive was not easy. I’m much better now but I do occasionally have moments when I feel really down. And that is what inspired “The Monster Inside.” When you are at your lowest it’s easy for your depression to takeover. Even when you know you’re loved it can make you feel like you’re all alone. I hope anyone reading this that is suffering from depression or any mental health problems chooses to seek help or at least talk to close friends/family instead of giving up.
If anyone out there is going through something and needs someone to talk to please don’t hesitate to reach out to me via email or social media. I tend to be more active on email so that would be the fastest way to reach me.
