Writing Prompt #74: What do you think your life would be like if you didn’t have anxiety or depression?
What do you think your life would be like if you didn’t have anxiety or depression?
Part of me thinks it would be clear skies and rainbows. Like I would be on cloud 9 enjoying my life but I think this whole spoken word thing would have never come about. Before I met depression I was only into writing stories. Depression made me want to express myself and spoken word fell into my hands one day and we collaborated on some deep poems that cleared my mind. I said things in poems that my friends and enemies would have never known. Sometimes I think depression reconnected me with my creative side. Also allowed me to release my inner demons. So to answer this question. Without depression, I think my life would be boring. Only because I probably wouldn’t be into poetry. But who knows? Reading that back it sounds weird like I actually like having it. But I don’t like depression but I have gotten used to it. It’s weird and hard to explain. Without it, I think K. Exum wouldn’t have existed. Maybe it would have come about still. Who knows really? On one hand, I don’t like depression because it puts me in a dark place. But I have gotten used to it to the point that I’ll have my little episode and then come back to my normal self.
Today’s Prompt came from a website that is now deleted. I wanted to take a break from poetry and do a simple little paragraph. Will be back soon with more poetry. I may do another mental health prompt soon. Until then leave your answer to this prompt in the comments below.
