Sometimes depression and anxiety feels to me like im drowning. does anyone else get that?
bubbles skim the waters surface as i struggle to swim, struggle to breathe
im falling, sinking, deeper, downwards, like a leaf falling from its tree
in slow motion it seems, time seems to stand still
im trying to hold on but i can no longer feel
there's nothing but silence and a undeniable insight
that ill soon stop breathing if i don't continue to fight
the water all around me is so heavy and its pulling me away
away from life, from joy and from love
all my memories and loved ones are being left up above.
hey wait for me, im here fighting to stay.
please don't think i don't care that my life is draining away
but sometimes this is just how i feel
like im drowning , the suffocation feels so real
but i try to find a light in every day
a moment of joy
this is my distraction from my pain
its ok not to be okay
the sun cannot shine every single day.
nor can it rain every day either
its ok to have lows as long as the highs still come too
reach out to your loved ones.
the ones that love you
please don't hold your pain inside your heart
release it, set it free that's a strong place to start.
try to smile at something everyday
and think positive, keep telling yourself that you will be okay.
