The Sad Little Girl~A Poem
Her legs are like rubber, her head feels confused
The weight of the world crushes and leaves her all bruised
with such chaos at home it seems nothing looks nice
She has no one to talk to or ask for advice
She feels invisible to the world and those all around her
Why cant anyone see me, am I just a blur
She see's a dark world where there is no sun
Life is depressing with no chance of fun
She wonders if daylight will ever come through
She see's only pain in her little girl view
Her world is so lonely, she doesn't feel strong
I am a nothing and I don't belong
Why won't someone see me and help me get up
I'm slipping away like a half empty cup
I notice kids playing and laughing at school
Why can't I feel good, this world is so cruel
Help me dear Lord so they don't see me cry
I don't want to live but I'm too scared to die
Although most of my classmates would tell you I was a happy child, that was not always the case. I grew up in a dysfunctional family of two alcoholic parents. I learned how to survive the chaos and uncertainty, but depression and anxiety was a by product of my difficult childhood. I've learned strategies to help me live a fulfilling life despite the depression and anxiety; including eventually getting on an anti-depressant.
