Just a Poem (Battling)

Seeking therapy is one of the scariest things I have ever had to do, so I decided to write a poem about it and may end up with a few posts that may be focused on that aspect of my life I haven’t shared before. I am considering this a type of therapy for me and hope that people that may be going through some of these things see it isn’t too late to seek help…you aren’t alone.


A constant battle can’t seem to win

Ups and down dark and light

Happy today sad tomorrow

This battle I’ve begun to fight

Hits me hard and brings me down

Feeling helpless like I could drown

Feelings raw kept inside

Forever trying with a smile to hide

But help I have sought

Not hiding behind this strong facade

Not locking it up inside

Not keeping feeling I have to hide

The journey begins with me

Scary though it may be

One of scariest to admit needing help
