Don’t Put Down The Pen

Don’t put down the pen just yet

There is still so much left to write

Your story has just begun

Don’t give up so soon

There is always another chapter

There can always be a happy ending

You just need to keep writing

This week, I wanted to share a poem I wrote for Mental Health Awareness Month instead of another type of post. For anyone struggling with depression or suicidal thoughts, know that you’re not alone and that there are always ways to deal with these issues so please don’t give up.

  1. مرسی عزیز دلم

    I’m tired of people “specially women” threatening me.

    “Men” I know how to shut them up. It <> when other women attack me.

  2. So true. Sometimes one can be so easily discouraged. Keep going. The thing is writing is hard to calibrate or even evaluate. It’s not like other work that have a definite shape and progress… It’s all in the head.

    1. Yes absolutely. It is generally mostly going on in your head and it’s hard to show progress until it’s completed. Plus, writing is so subjective.

  3. Everyone has a story they want to write and tell, but sometimes it can be hard to write. We just have to start writing it until the ending is how we want it. Keep writing, you never know what you may come up with.

  4. One of the best pieces of business advice I’ve ever received is to just keep going and finish. That poem, that short story, that novel. Finishing the first draft feels overwhelming, much like life can feel at times. Thank you for sharing! I love reading your writing.

  5. I know this is really weird from me telling to a stranger but I found comfort in your words of wisdom and for anyone reading this: I’m almost 40 and a straight woman with no children but if ever someone forced me to have sex with them and if I got magically pregnant and if I gave birth to a daughter (I am sorry but I don’t care if it’s any other kind of child), please please help me if that ever happens because I don’t want to marry or have a biological daughter by force and I don’t want to give birth in a home with no medical equipment around and please help me and my daughter after birth to run AWAY from these monsters that are threatening me like this and help me go somewhere in this earth without these monsters know where I am and I know of what to do next for me and my biological daughter. Just make sure these monsters never come back to my life.

    So far, I am healthy, living with my biological parents, and I have no biological children or a husband but I thought to share this here maybe some random person on Earth sees this and keeps an eye on me until I reach the age I can no longer give biological birth to a daughter(s) -you never know how many daughters- or these monsters call me my parents (I’m guessing god parents I fucking never knew I had because my biological parents are angels) leave me alone.

    I just wanted one random person to read this on Earth and on the internet so maybe they keep an eye on me.

    May God or whatever you believe help me and I am thankful to you from the bottom of my heart. May you achieve what you desire for just reading this

  6. Such an important poem and message. It’s hard to find reasons to keep going with the state of the world right now, but we must keep seeking our own little joys through the chaos of life.

    1. Thanks so much. Yeah, there’s so much going on and a lot of people are experiencing so many negative emotions but it’s important not to get overwhelmed and to always keep going.

  7. This is so relevant! We all have stories that deserve to be lived out, we just have to be willing to keep going – very powerful!

  8. I read something about people who have a tattoo of a semicolon on their wrist is a symbol of having got through the worst of mental health problems. I loved the explanation of why a semicolon is the best symbol to have for that

  9. I have struggled with suicidal thoughts before. Apparently, it was a symptom of my schizophrenia. Thankfully, I am on an adequate dose of medication to manage my mental health. Life goes on. Life is good. Nice poem.

  10. Beautiful poem. It reminds me of what I went through in 2017. I almost “put the pen down.” But, I’m still here and practicing coping skills daily. Some days are harder than others, but I have art and poetry to help me. I’ve noticed how therapeutic the two can be. They’re my life, in addition to my husband and two cats.

  11. Thank you for sharing this! I find that sometimes at the end of the day I get so tired and lazy and don’t feel like writing especially when I’ve had a bad day, but at the end of it, I feel so refreshed to get the words on the paper and the thoughts out of my head. It’s nice to be reassured of it.


    1. My pleasure! I absolutely know that feeling. Sometimes I have to push myself to sit down and write but like you said it’s worth it in the end.
