Stuck in The Depression Hole REBLOG

Blogger and PR specialist Jamila Wardak shares her very relatable thoughts on depression in her poem Stuck in the Depression Hole.


I can’t get past this feeling
I get stuck almost every day
I’m on antidepressants
but this feeling won’t go away
I’ve tried deep breathing and yoga
meditation and journaling too
this depression continues to suck me in
and there’s nothing I can do.
I need to learn to work through it
even in my darkest hours
no one can help me get through it
or help me feel empowered
How does one truly recover
will I ever feel normal again?
pieces of my past I’ve uncovered
that I thought would bring me zen
instead, I feel more empty
every day that goes by
can’t seem to understand
or find the reason why.
I wake up every day,
with this helplessness inside.
Let my friends and family know
because there’s nothing left to hide.
I know the feeling is temporary
but right now it’s here to stay
and I might not feel alright
but I will be okay.
It’s getting through
the day by day
that’s the hardest right now
not being present in life
is difficult to workaround
I feel like nothing’s good enough
Like I can’t catch a break
and when I’m alone at night
to panic attacks, I wake
Physical comfort is the only way
to get me to snap out of this state
but I can’t even have that right now
and that drives me insane
I am stating all these things
to help me stay aware
I have people that love me
and that will always be there
I have put faith in God
to get me through tonight
tomorrow is a new day
and I will continue the fight
I will take my pill
climb a bit more
breathe a little deeper
I have so much to live for.
