Mental illnesses are real. Your mental health matters!! Poem by me. Check it out.
Everyday is like war to me,
Struggling everyday to prevail reality,
A bath, do my hair, get dressed and put on my shoes,
It’s really hard, some days, to see a good point of view,
Being judged in so many ways,
By those who don’t know, those that don’t even understand.
Very high conservation, a worrier,
A woman that’s good at covering things up that’s bothering her,
A woman putting on a show, knowing inside, she feels no hope.
I’ve been trained to feel undeserving,
Unattractive, and so not worthy of making happy,
Tense and hard to love, feeling like im not good enough.
At times i feel like one big mistake,
My mind overthinks, can’t concentrate, and almost everyday is hard to face.
Everyday im surrounded by people that actually think i can, and think I should, ‘just suck it all up’ and everything’s going to be good.
I’m just so tired of being misunderstood,
This mental war, i did not choose.
This poem is inspired by the everyday struggles of having a mental illness specifically major depression and anxiety. Everyday is a battle, but everyday is also a win to be very proud of.
Us people, that struggle with mental illnesses on a everyday basis can’t help, and we most definitely, did not choose, the battles that we face just about everyday.
We didn’t choose to have all these different feelings, the different moods, the difference emotions, and the different views in/of life, that mental illnesses brings us through.
Stop the stigma about mental illnesses, especially if it’s something that you never had to deal with.
Stop with the stigma about mental illnesses.
Because of all the stigma about mental illnesses, (mental health), a person could be struggling and not even get help.
Because of being either ashamed, or embarrassed, they will do anything but they won’t seek help.
If you or someone you know struggling with a mental illness, get help and know that you are not alone. Yes, mental illnesses do in fact, make you feel alone, but you are not alone.
And trust me, you’re not the only one. Don’t be ashamed, and don’t try to do it alone, talk to someone. Talk to your doctor, there’s medications, and many different resources, that can help you feel better.
Depression, Or Any Other Mental Illness? It’s Okay
Everyday Battles Of Depression Poem By Me Expressive Jackie

It is the most darkest place one could face alone,
A journey filled with struggles solo, all alone.
Everyday filled with many groans,
Everyday is a new battle,
Against the same competitor.
Yet the enemy exchanges blows back with irrational roars.
It sneaks up on you in your most helpless shape,
Mostly when there’s no around who can communicate.
The thoughts in your brain begins to expand and distend,
Which drags you into your private repressed nightmare.
Fabrications and organism from your past
Served as pain, that you can’t withstand.
Lastly sleep always comes as a greeting friend,
Knowing the next morning the continual battle begins yes, yet again.
This poem is about the daily struggle with self image, feeling like you’re not good enough for yourself or nobody else. It’s a daily battle of trying to feel accepted, and also, the struggle of learning to love yourself.
In order to love someone else, you have to first start by loving yourself.
Everyday, there is a battle to face. But don’t give up, life is to short, put a smile on your face, and take control over those battles you face, everyday.

Good morning to all of my followers, and readers. Thanks for taking time out of your day to read what i have to say. I hope and i pray, that today, each and everyone of you, has a blessed day.
I wonder what do you call it when all you feel is pain,
When you’re surrounded with your family, and they look at you, and all you feel is shame,
When you’re tired of living and playing this depression game,
At times, life feels meaningless and you’re the one to blame,
Feeling lost and those thoughts can make you feel insane,
Sitting here thinking like “My life isn’t the same,”
Feeling hurt deep in your soul,
When you’re smiling and laughing,
Knowing it’s all a show,
Feeling like you’re really at your all-time low,
Nothing makes you happy and everything dark begins to grow,
What do you call it when you feel all alone?
When you’re home but the house you live in doesn’t feel like a home,
Looking back at my life like why everything went so wrong,
If you struggle with depression, you are not alone,
Stay and remain strong! Don’t fight depression on your own.
Depression takes you to a very dark place. But you don’t have to go through it alone. There is help. Getting help doesn’t mean that you’re weak, it means you care about yourself and you want to beat this.
You think depression isn’t real, but do you know how does depression feels?
Not wanting to live.
Not wanting to die.
All day, you lay down and just want to cry.
Not being able to explain those feelings you feel inside.
Feeling like nobody cares, cause nobody’s there by your side.
You wake up everyday, pretending to be okay.
Pretending to be okay, so nobody thinks you’re crazy.
Walking around, faking, like you’re happy, but deep down inside, you feel like your breaking.
Feeling full of despair.
Everyday it feels like a nightmare.
Feeling so worthless and so hopeless.
I just pray to get through those moments.
You think depression isn’t real, you think depression is all in the mind, well why are people committing suicide?
Why are people taking their own lives?
All of this, should open the eyes of the ones who think depression is a lie.
People are committing suicide everyday, and everyday the numbers rise.
Don’t let suicide be your option, your life matters, there’s other options.
Let’s stop the stigma of mental illnesses, than people might go get help, to start healing. You are not alone, you don’t have to end it. Things can, and will get better, you just watch and see it.
Your life has meaning.
If you or someone you know, thinking about committing suicide, call this helpline. Suicide hotline
Your life matters!! You matter!!
Trapped In Depression Poem By Me, Expressive Jackie
#depression #depressionisreal #dontgiveup #nevergiveup #alwayspray #pray #poem #poems #depressionpoem #lostpoems #life #realityofdepression #keepfighting
I had it once now it’s gone.
Just like a shoe lace it’s been undone.
Was so tight at once now so slack.
Those happy times i wish i could get back.
Sitting at home and feeling all alone.
No friends to call on i’m the only.
Feeling like a zombie on the outside, and on the inside it feels like i’m dying.
Feeling like the living dead, so many thoughts and questions flying around in my head.
So much confusion floods down, it streams, i just don’t understand why this is happening to me.
There’s so signal of anybody who wants to help, no touch of feelings or any of myself.
Where and how can i find some answers?
Why is this happening?
Who am i?
Am i a feeling?
Am i a dreamer? Or am i a dream?
How do my thoughts begin?
How do i know this will end?
Why do i act like this?
What makes me do this?
Yes i do know i overanalyze entirely to much, but that’s something i can’t help.
I can’t help the thoughts.
Just thinking, and staring into space just trying to relax, as i sit and think.
I really want to free myself from my mind, and not pretend.
I want to feel like myself, i want to feel normal again. I really wonder when will this all end.
But no matter what, i’ll keep fighting it.
Depression poem i wrote, some time ago. I decided to share it. Feel free to comment and like it.
Sometimes, just writing what you feel can help you heal.
Whatever you do, DON’T
There is help out here, and you are never alone. Yes, depression makes you feel so lonely, but you are not alone.
Getting help shows that you do care about yourself, not that you are weak, but that you care about your health. Get help! Don’t try to do it by yourself. Everybody needs help, at some point in their lives.
I hate the stigma of mental health.
Most people think that you’re faking it, like it’s all in your head, or saying you’re just lazy, or maybe even think that you’re crazy.
Why would i make all of this up? I’m not crazy. I can’t help it i can’t just make up all of these thoughts. Do you think i get up everyday wanting to be distraught? Some people are nuts.
Everyday is hard, everyday is rough, but i still push myself because i can’t, and i won’t give up. Having all these feelings, and having all these thoughts, and the people around me feels, “i just need to suck it up.”
I know right? That is messed up!
Like we all, just wake up everyday determined, to prepare all this stuff, the different thoughts, the feelings of wanting to give up, the feelings of guilt, and the feelings like everything is your fault. Major depression and anxiety, is already hard as it is, and every time i turn around people are talking negative, like mental illnesses isn’t real. Like it’s all in your head, like you can control how you feel.
Depression is nothing but darkness as it is, and family/people not believing that your really ill, not believing depression is actually real or even severe. Like i asked for all this, like i wanted this type of atmosphere. Always feeling guilty and always feeling hopeless, nobody cares and nobody ever notices. Everyday, i get on my knees and i pray. Praying and hoping, that people will understand one day.
Understand that, we’re all still humans, understand that it can even happen to you. Understand that we don’t like, and we didn’t choose, the feelings, and the emotions, mental illnesses brings us through. Understand, we’re not crazy, and we’re not insane, the only difference is, our brains just overthinks. Depression (all mental illnesses) is real, it’s definitely not fake, depression can hit you, you, you, or you any day.
Depression, anxiety, bipolar, panic disorder, and any other mental illness, does not discriminate. Some people think that it can’t happen to them, but believe me, it can happen to you too.
If you, or someone you know struggling with a mental illness, get help. Nothing is wrong with asking for help, i can vouch for that. I was ashamed to say i needed help, i was ashamed to say how i was feeling, i was ashamed to explain those thoughts that was in my brain, because i thought people would call me crazy, or even insane. But asking for help does not mean you’re weak or defective, depression is really an illness caused by a biochemical imbalance in the brain. You’re a very strong person because, it takes a great deal of strength to fight back, and you’re doing just that. You aren’t weak, everybody needs some kind of help, with something in some way in their lives, and everybody needs somebody, it might not be now, but as time goes by. It’s apart of life.
