The elephant in the room……

No matter where I go or where I travel he is always on my back, people see it, they hear it and sense it but no one mentions it …….it’s my curse to have alone……….the elephant is so heavy some days it’s actually too heavy to carry on my own, so instead I drag it around wherever I go……they accept my fake smiles and do not question my very evident physical disjointment and they listen to your fake laughs all the while with a huge elephant on my back. Sometimes I wish someone would scream at it and maybe it would listen and shrink after time, maybe I would be able to stand tall one day again like before I had depression, pride, confidence, emotions and love. Maybe if people who cared started talking about it instead of dancing around it , I want to talk about it every second of everyday as it’s my life I live no matter the time…….
