Fighting for myself

Anxiety stings against my side

Depression slowly rises

It wraps itself tightly around my mind

Until I wince in pain

And I wonder how much more I can take

How much longer

Do I have to fight for myself

And for the peace I deserve?

I am a New Jersey based poet who aspires to share my story through poetry and prose focused on faith and my journey with depression. I have overcome many obstacles and I believe everyone has a story to tell, even if they haven't found the words yet. I hope my words can inspire others to believe in their purpose and to find strength to climb the next mountain.
