I stand here once again
My mind barely sane
I always find myself at this ledge
And each time I pledge
To never come back
But life sometimes gets off track
A part of me wants to jump off it
And the other part wants me to hit
The reset button life and start over
As I stand here and hover
Contemplating my life
My heart feeling like it’s been stabbed by a knife
The sun begins to shine once more
I jump off the ledge and begin to soar
I’m finally free
I can finally be me
I can finally be happy
About The Poem:
“Standing On A Ledge” was inspired by some inner work I have been doing recently. I’ve talked about this on earlier posts, but currently my therapist and I are working on healing old wounds and reconnecting with my inner child. As someone who has depression, I do have depressive episodes and those can feel like standing on a ledge.
However, over time I have learnt to get better at handling them. Even if it does feel like standing on the ledge, I’ve realise that jumping of walking back aren’t always the two options. As we heal our old wounds, we begin to free our heart and mind. The anger and hurt that we spend so much time and energy holding on to begins to subside. Am I ever going to be perfect? No. But I can still be the best version of me that I can be. And that’s what I’m working towards right now.
