Life can be so overwhelming,
especially living with mental health.
Your mind never quiets…
and it can be so hard to ask for help.
“Never lose control” screams my anxiety
as I add 10 things to my daily to-do list;
“You can’t do anything today”
my depression insists.
I get so frustrated, upset
and I feel like I’m drowning…
My head barely above water,
silent on the outside but my mind is always shouting.
I want to run away
from this mental cage called life;
my family would be better of without me…
I’m hardly alive.
But always, a voice comes
whether it’s my mind or his words,
reminding me of the good things:
the fun times, the love and my worth.
