We Igbos

Taboo taboo 
Mother I'm depressed 
We Igbos do not get depression 
Don't you see what I put up with 
Do you see what I've been through 
Your father 
His family 
Your siblings 
My family 
The community 
Everyday I feel helpless 
Everyday I wonder if this life is worth it 
But I work . I keep working to take my mind off the pain and trauma I've experienced 
We Igbos do not get depression
