Melancholy is a book of poems written by several poets from different countries in Africa.
All the poems in this book were written under the same theme ‘Depression’ but from different angles.
Some poems are from an angle of a person battling with depression, a person feeling defeated by depression, life after defeating depression.
The aim of the book is to raise awareness about depression amongst young people especially in the black nationality because in Africa, depression is taken lightly by many families and this is due to lack of knowledge about the deadly disease and also to let people going through depression know that they are not alone in this, there are many ways of dealing with depression that do not include hurting themselves, committing suicide, drugs & alcohol abuse.
Art is life.
Writing experiences in a form of a song, a poem or even memes simply show that there is a way out, there is hope.

I have been living with depression for a long time and knowing that I am one among many people living with depression was the inspiration behind this book with the hope it brings peace to others and saves lives.
