In this live spoken word performance, Sabrina Benaim uses poetry and expression in an emotional appeal to her mother to help her understand just how difficult depression is for her to overcome. As the conversation progresses, we learn that her mother has really addressed Sabrina’s depression either by minimizing or underestimating its grip on her daughter.
When I listened to this, I found the lyrics and level of emotion to be very raw, arresting and tragic at the same time. Sabrina has given a very eloquent voice to the silent millions who suffer from depression and anxiety every day.
