There are wounds on the body that go deeper than anything that bleeds

One of the hardest parts of life is deciding whether to walk away or try harder.

I didn't want to wake up.

I was having a much better time asleep.

And that's really sad.

It was almost like a reverse nightmare, like when you wake up from a nightmare you're so relieved.

I woke up into a nightmare.

I want one of those long hugs where you kinda forget whatever else is happening around for a minute.

I am bent, but not broken.

I am scarred, but not disfigured.

I am sad, but not hopeless.

I am tired, but not lifeless.

I am afraid, but not powerless.

I am angry, but not bitter.

I am depressed, but not giving up.


The author's comments:

I have been battling depression for about a year now. You are never alone. You are good enough. You are loved. You are worth everything. You don't have to carry the weight of the world on your battle-worn shoulders. Talk to someone. If they give one heck about your life, they will listen.

"Stars can't shine without darkness."

I relate to this poem so deeply that it sent chills through my spine as I read it. It reminded me how strong I actually am and showed me I got through the dark times. I also love the repetition of "i am". It adds a really great effect.
