Never Turning Back

Slowly, my heart began beating faster

With every breath, I tried to hold back the tears

My mind running wild

Too many thoughts

Glancing in the mirror,

I knew

This is no longer me

Slowly, I stood

Breathe in

Breathe out

Walk forward

Never turning back

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.
