Mental Health

verbal abuse

you never

lifted a finger

against me

and yet

you knew

exactly what

would break me down

and make me feel inferior

you knew

exactly what

would make me question

my worth

and wince in pain

your words

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.
