500 words reflection Statement on poem

: The Issue being protested

My Poem is called Silent Screams a protest against depression.

In my poem I have tried to create as many sad and or depressed feeling as possible. It was hard to write about depression because it was very hard to imagine feelings that I have never experienced. I tried to fine certain poem get an idea from but was amazing what I found.

And when I said " All I try to do is right but every one seems to treat me wrong". I portraying that he has tried to do everything in his power to try and make friends but no matter how much he is like them they are always still mean to him.

The way I chose to perform this poem was in the way it was written in a sad and depressed mood with lots of dark feelings and emotions and also in a way to bring back emotions in people that had experienced this. And give emotions to the people that hadn't experienced this so far in their life. This was Important
