My personal struggle with never ending depression.


I've been drowning for as long as I can remember.

I never find a way to keep my head above water for long.

bubbles of oxygen find their way to my lungs and I gasp,

I have a moment of peace. A moment of warmth. A moment of clarity.

A moment where I forget that I was ever drowning in the first place.

I tread water and enjoy the calm breeze.

The reflection of sun beams trace beautiful patters on my skin. I'm glowing.

Then, the bubbles pop and I am immersed in the depths

over and over. The warmth ending just as quickly as it once began.

I'm struggling just as strongly before,

& I never know which direction is up.

I don't know how much longer I can do this.
