I like how the light is blasting through the bulby stuff, it's a strong image. The hands are an interesting addition, it shows that feeling of being over stressed (pulled from all directions) very well. It's a nice piece, thanks for posting it!
My partner talks about depression as a darkness a lot, and those who have survived and continue to survive chronic depression as lantern-bearers who can help guide others out of the dark because we know it so well ourselves, and in so doing the darkness within us becomes a tool we can choose to use to help others.
And I have no idea...maybe? I was depressed during high school too, I just happened to start using art as a coping mechanism in college.
