I want to give up
I want to let go
I want to drown
Until I can’t breathe anymore
I want to give in
I don’t want to feel like this
I just want to give in
As many of the people that follow me on this blog may know, I suffer from clinical depression. I was diagnosed as a teenager and have been battling with it ever since. This poem, “Give In”, was inspired by the feelings I was experiencing during a depressive episode. Depression is something that often comes in waves. At least it feels that way for me. Some days you can be totally okay and the next day the depression can really hit you. I try to fight as much as I can but the truth is sometimes it can be really exhausting. My mind sometimes wants to give up. Of course, I hope I never give up but sometimes it feels easier to.
