It’s ok to not be okay…

Going slightly off beat
I’ve always thought,
Admitting depression
Was admitting defeat.
So I’ve lived in denial
Afraid to become
Like my demons,
Unstable & suicidal.
I’m seeing clear
I’m seeking help
Instead of drowning,
Within my fear.
A soul burning inside,
A piece of myself
A piece of this life,
I’ve tried hard to hide.
But everyone hurts in time
It’s good to scream out loud
It’s fine to cry all night,
Being sad isn’t a crime.
So what I’m trying to say
Please don’t hide like I did
It will eat you up & break you down
When It’s OK to not be okay.

    This is a beautifully written piece. Especially for those who suffer from depression, or for those who are pretty clueless about mental illnesses. I’m so happy you found help and are doing better. I hope other people with mental health issues read and seek help to. I find it’s difficult to do the depression thing alone youreally do need help — a doctor, therapist, a friend to talk to who won’t judge you. Prayers for you. It will get better, there are some good days ahead!

    It’s okay to not be okay 🙂 We’re all broken whether or not it’s visible to the naked eye. So deal with it, in whatever way suits you best. Always reach out! There will always be someone to help 🙂
