Too Young

They say I'm too young

Too young to know what depression is

Too young to experience anxiety


But what they don't know is that is my everday struggle

Struggle to breath

My anxiety choking me in fear

My depression stomping on my mind and heart

Not letting me feel or think of anything other then sadness


I may smile

But it might not be real

I may laugh

Does it sound musical to you?

Are you sure you can truly hear it?


When I say I'm in love

They say I'm too young

Too young to have a boyfriend

Even if that boyfriend makes me happy

And if he makes it easier to breath

Even if he eases my mind and heart

Even if I would do anything for him

Is it still not love?

Am I still too young?


Feelings are feelings

This is something you cannot deny

So please do not judge mine

They are not yours to judge


I am young

Maybe I can run longer and jump higher

Maybe I grow and you shrink

But let me tell you this


I may be young

But my mind is older

It is much older

It can tell you about politics

It can tell you about love

It can you tell you about depression and anxiety

It can tell you about taking antidepressants every morning


So after reading all this, let me ask you


How lucky are you?

To be taken seriously

Because you are not as young


People take you more seriously if you say

"I can't breath

My heart hurts

I see no point in living

I might run away

what would it feel like to disappear?"


I know these things

I have thought these things

No one listenes to me

No one believes me

Because I am 13


So hear me now

Hear me scream


I am NOT too young to feel those feelings

Please come save me instead
