The Lifelong Battle

I knew it was true

When I felt the same

Breaking my legs

As I did when I smiled


I thought happiness would come

If I achieved it all

But it never felt right

And nothing was wrong


I was troubled

After a decade of chasing

It was all in my mind

I said I was better


I felt less

Like it should be more

Because I was happy

But I wasn’t


I couldn’t tell 

My loved ones this

Maybe I could show

But no


I dont want this 

To make them feel less

Because I cant be more

Do it for them


I can’t let it out

Is what my mind told 

Until it couldn’t 

And I knew I had to try


I wanted denial

But I needed my truth

Depression is real

And it’s no ones fault


I didnt want to feel alone

Not anymore

To wrestle my mind 

Day by day and night after night 


I face them now

And hold on tight

A fight to win 

No matter what
