Poem About Defeating Depression

Updated on September 17, 2015

I Can't

I can't do it...
The voice cries out
Again and again
I can't do it...
Haunts her days
And then her nights
I can't do it...
A block is there
That stops her flow.

There's no rhyme
There's no reason
Just an endless seige
Of not believin'
Can't overcome
This feeling.
It stops this girl
From really dealing.

I don't want to hear you
She heard her mother
Hit the cold floor.
I'm tired of you talking
She heard the sobs
Through her walls.
Stop your crying
She hears the echo
Of the tears.

I can't stop this
In my head
I'm not dreaming
The nightmare's there
When I'm not sleeping.
There's no time
For any grieving.

I can't do it
Stops her writing
I can't do it
Stops her pen.
I can't do it
Makes her life hell
I can't do it
Holds her down.

You can't do it
That's what she heard
You can't do it
That''s what she learned
You can't do it
Those were his words.

I can't do it...
That's what I hear
I can't do it...
That's what I fear
I can't do it
That's what I know
I can't do it
That where I go.


I Can

You can do it
Says the sweet voice
Barely heard amidst the screams.

You are loved
Whispers this voice
With a soft appealing tone.

It is finished.
Says the small voice
With a calm authority.

Go in peace
It's over now
Rest and believe
I'll show you how.
The pain is done
You've been set free
You don't have to
Prove you're worthy.
I loved you then
And I love you still
You are my daughter
You are my will.

It is finished...
I have done it.
You can do it.
You can do it.
