depression, a footnote

by erenah

growing up, I didn't think I'd actually live

beyond the age of nineteen - and still,

I remain "at risk" according to all the

statistical factors that psychologists use

when they divine what anchors a person in space:

determine what's missing in those that don't stay.

every day, I measure where I am against what's passed:

have learnt the hard way that no anguish, however vast,

persists,

(for all that they've left their scars)

I exist -

and even if, like Persephone,

it is an afterlife I couldn't have imagined inhabiting

it's still a life, and it is mine

and I'm relieved that I'm in it, still,

alive
