Who is this Darkness?

I make you sad.
I make you mad.
I come after anyone,
Whether you are happy or sad.
I am dark-
people call me evil.
I will follow you everywhere,
And I will find you.
You won't escape me-
Each day I'll become stronger,
making you beg for help.
Don't be foolish-
I won't leave.
Don't ask for help,
Cause they won't help.
But let me introduce myself,
Hello there, my name is depression

Depression is a real thing, now more than ever it's everywhere. But people are too scared to say something about it, and keep it to themselves. I want people to understand that they are not alone, so in my poems I like to show readers the struggles of depression. Some may think depression is just some type of silly sadness that will go away, but there is more to it.
