Here I Stand

Hello everyone!

I decided to challenge myself by writing poetry.

The first poem I wrote expresses living with depression and anxiety. It is so important to remember that depression or anxiety can look and feel different for everyone. I am writing from personal experiences in hope to help others not feel alone. Please comment and share any thoughts or questions. Enjoy!



Here I Stand 

I lay still

tortured by the silence

Heart pounding, Palms sweating

Longing for the silence to break before the daemons awake

I lay still

Haunted by their presence

Stomach churning, soul-crushing

Thoughts of despair fill the room

I stand up

To prove them wrong

I will not run from their screams

They do not make me

I stand up

Fighting their lies

Using them for strength

Building my life without them

-B.N. Grace
