Falling Hard. Feeling Everything.
This is poetry five years in the making. I began writing my senior year of college right after my brother passed away. Shortly after, I realized I was dealing with depression and anxiety. I was battling with it years prior, but had no idea what it was. I was struggling trying to figure out how to handle it. But the only way my mind calmed down is by putting it all on paper. This is my life over the last five years that was originally scrawled over four journals. Some of it dates before then, but I finally figured out how to express it and get it out of my head. It is all about heartbreak, a not so good father, a loss of a brother and a stepfather, and everything in between. I decided to share my writing because there are a lot of people struggling with mental health. If one person feels less lonely by reading this, then I have succeeded.
