Today I would like to open up and talk a little about a topic I don’t normally discuss here on the blog.
Because May is Mental Health Awareness month, I wanted to devote a few posts to the topic.
So many people have had good things to say and share about the topic. Here on WordPress, Facebook and other places on the world wide web.
I admire their courage. I admire their strength.
It takes courage to live with mental illness, but just about as much to share that you struggle with it.
Today I would like to shed some light on the mental illness that is depression.
More specifically, I have sought to describe how depression can both make a person feel like time is standing still and yet going on forever. You can feel stuck. In life, in your day, in a moment.
If you are one of the many who struggle with depression, I hope that this poem can be an encouragement to you and a gentle reminder to get back to the you that you know.
Depression is a real struggle. There is hope. You are not alone.
You Can’t Stay In Forever
You can’t stay in forever
You can’t fight the pace
I crave forever
When I’m feeling
Forever’s a trap.
“I’m never changing ever”
Spin you out of
Bring you back.
This poem is my own.
