This piece of prose was adapted from my suicide note in which I tried to attempt suicide three times. Hospitalized with nothing but a coloured pencil and sudoku puzzles, I wrote this poem from fragments of my mind’s reflections. I revisited these fragments to compose this visual poetry piece, hoping that it will bring awareness to mental illness and to encourage others struggling with mental illness to use poetry as a form of therapy. This poem is about the tolls that depression takes on ones mind and that it is a silent, but devastating disorder. The canvas serves also as a symbolic reference to the fact that I tied my wrists with black ribbon during my attempt. This in a sense is what saved me and to this day serves as an important reminder for the day that changed my life. The background mirror allows the audience to reflect about themselves while reading and to see that depression does not make you who you are.
