Just another day..

by C J T   Oct 1, 2017


Another day passes
Still i sit here
Wondering why
I can't kick this fear..

Made no progress
Battling these demons
That hide inside
Until the pain deepens..

Trapped inside my mind
Feel dead but still breathing
Cant escape in due time
Sometimes i question worth living..

Dont wanna hurt
Dont wanna be a burden
Silently screaming
Look happy but hurting..

They say get over it
You can make it through
When you dont slightly understand
What is happening to you..

Take another breath
Tell yourself that
It will be fine
You want to believe it
But know its a lie..

No where to run
No where to hide
The anxiety is back
It can eat you alive..

But you just gotta
Keep on pushing
Because you know
Youll make it through..

Keep in mind your
Friends and family
They want you to live
Do it for yourself
To let go and forgive..

But i know its hard
Everydays a struggle
So much to do
To much to juggle..

You want it to stop
Dont wanna keep going
Tired of the stress
And constant unknowing..

Will it ever get better
Will i ever stop crying
Wanna look in the mirror
Without all the denying..

My mind is so crowded
With all these memories
Some good, some bad
Some hard to believe..

But its just another day
Forcing away the doubt
Putting on a smile
That eventually wears out..

Trying to believe in
Something were told
You gotta keep pushing
Live happy grow old
Sometimes its impossible
My heart so cold..

Not sure if im finished.. Just something off the top of my head . For anyone who struggles with anxiety, depression, etc.. You are not alone and if anyone ever needs to talk or has any questions PM me .

    This wonderful piece of writing from your own perspective, resonates with me on a deep level. I like the way you have flowed this piece with delicacy, but also with your emotions having a powerful impact.
    I know it is not easy living with something that needs managing and working through.
    The beauty of poetry is we connect with like-minded people and a lovely way to express oneself with no rules.

    Really enjoyed this and one, and for sure I would have liked to nominated. I will try tomorrow :)
    Well done, and keep well

    Michael :)

    I know this feeling so well and it is agony and a daily struggle. I have learned not to fight my depression otherwise my anxiety kicks in and it will get worse. You have expressed yourself well here and that is a step in the right directo in. Keep writing. Hugs
