"Its okay, I'm Use To It."

Who else has said these very words? Who else can relate? LMK

"Its okay, I'm use to it," I say, with a heavy sigh,
For too long, I've known this pain, I can't deny.
Its okay, Ive learned to adapt, to endure and bear. 
To hide the pain inside, and the tears I can't share. 

"Its okay, I'm use to it," I say,
With a heavy sigh, as I face another day,
For too long, this pain has been my guide,
But I've learned to adapt, to let it reside. 

"It's okay, I'm use to it," I say, 
But deep within, a bitter reality lays,
The Sting of rejection, cuts deep,
A wound that's hidden, yet always asleep. 

"Its okay, I'm use to it," I say,
But my heart weeps and yearns to stray,
To find a peace that's warm and true,
To mend the wounds that I've been through.

Unrelenting Void Poem

This void hides deep inside,
A battle that still resides,
The struggle, the pain, intertwines,
Threatening to consume, to confine.

Breakdowns come, powerful and grim,
Urges mock, laugh, taunt with a devilish grin,
Forever haunting, undeterred,
Trapped by the void, my screams unheard.

Though my strength is weak,
The fight within, fierce and unique,
Motivation may crumble, my soul may tire,
But deep down, a fire burns, an unyielding desire.

Let the tears flow, but only a few,
But in silence, no one must know the truth,
For I must remain strong, hidden behind the pain,
Put on that happy face, while the pain still remains.

poem by dallise marais

I was 8 years old the first time I wanted to die.
13 the first time I carved my thigh.
It's crazy.
How one day I'm worrying about when i get to go play at the park.
then I blink .
suddenly I'm worrying about how I'll pay my rent or how I'll get my next meal
It's crazy.
how being borderline and depressed has taken over every aspect of my life
as my mind is constantly in shambles
reminiscing of better days.
never thought I'd live to see 18
but I'm 20 now.
I have no choice but to keep carrying on but how do I continue with these demons in my head and this pressure in my chest that gives me no rest
as if my mind is obsessed with the what if's and have beens
losing friends has always been a talent of mine and you'd think time after time it would get easier but it doesn't.
It's crazy.
but just maybe
one day I'll be happy
until then
I'm just a vessel of who I used to be. It's crazy.

The poem.

Be the holder and the one being held and then you can become more than the opposites or the 2 sides of all things as they are.. We can behold the sun being held by the sky and yet it's there All day. We can know and be known as the day in our days like the wind to a feather 🪶 and yet the feather is just a window that is touching on to the horizon of life. ❤️🎭

Anxiety, I hate you #Anxiety #AnxietyAttack #Poem #Poetry

Of course I’m fine
But what if I’m not
Of course I’m okay
But what if I’m not
The world keeps turning
But here I am stuck
Trying to breathe and not throw up
My chest is tighter with every breath
Even though I think it’s supposed to be looser
Is this real or in my head
I really wish I knew
Sometimes I get caught up in daily panic attacks
Or anxiety attacks
I really don’t know the difference
But either way they’re torture
Your mind is screaming that something is wrong
But you can’t find what it is
It’s like searching for a flare in the dark
Only the flare is invisible
Am I dying?
Am I crying?
Am I sick?
Am I crazy?
The world may never know
But the worst part is
I need to know
I need answers
So I call the doctor
She says I’m fine
My family says I’m fine
I say I’m fine
But just loud enough to be heard
A voice says what if you’re not?
So the cycle starts again
I can’t breathe
I can’t focus
I feel untethered
Yet I feel everything at once
And I don’t know what to do
This week is worse than weeks past
And there will be more weeks like this in the future
Because unfortunately
Anxiety doesn’t go away because you told it to
It’s a parasite on your brain
It’s there to cause doubt and fear
It’s there to feed your fears and make them stronger
Well, anxiety
I say this
I hate you
I hate you
I hate you
I can’t breathe like a normal person
I can’t focus
I can’t sleep
All because you whisper to me
You feed my fears and my doubts
You exacerbate everything I’m feeling
I haven’t known peace in forever
I really miss knowing peace
I know she’s your enemy
But I want to be her friend
And I wish it was as simple as breaking up with anxiety
Believe me I would ghost it in a second
But since you’re appy here to stay
I beg you
Let me breathe in peace
I’ll call you when I need you
Please
Let me be okay

Panic #Anxiety #Poem

Fear and panic entangle my heart
A sharp intake of breath signals the start
Heart pounding and hands shaking
I promise I am not faking
My heart drops to my stomach in dread
Of one day when I will be dead

What if it’s not? #Anxiety #Poem #AnxietyAttack

I’ve known anxiety my whole life
Is it me or is the world really scary?
My brain is rotting
My chest is tight
My stomach turns
Am I dying?
Oh, I’m going die one day
My lungs constrict
My heart pumps harder
A stone falls in my gut
Breathe, they say
I am breathing
And it’s not helping
Don’t think about it
I’ve tried
Don’t you think I’ve realized that it’s stupid to believe my head when my eyes say I’m fine?
The ice spreads through my veins
The adrenaline crash says exhaustion
But my brain says if 2:30 passes you’re safe
You’re out of the danger zone
The alarm bells become a hum rather than a blaring beep
It’s frustrating to fight yourself everyday
Because that is what anxiety is
Constant war with yourself
I’m fine
But what if I’m not?
It’s fine
What if it’s not?
The chicken is not going to give you food poisoning
What if it does?
That pain in your leg is not a blood clot
What if it is?
You’re not having a heart attack
Are you sure?
No, I’m not
Why?
Because I have anxiety
