Denial befriended me before acceptance,
Who hurt and broke me down,
Taught me that I couldn’t cope.
Taught me that I should drown.
It made my efforts seem vain.
It made me feel alone.
It made me stop believing,
In that little thing called hope.
When everything felt numb,
And reality started to sink in.
I took a deep breath, and said,
Tomorrow my healing will begin.
I hope that you enjoyed my poem about mental health and the ongoing struggle that so many, including myself, often face. Don’t forget to let me know what you think in the comments.
Until next time keep dreaming x
