Drowning


I drown in a conscience that will not change for the better but only worsen
Will I escape it
I feel that each day it grows worse
With each passing day I seem to fall deeper into a pit of emotions that refuse to relinquish their hold on me
The serene sadness, stormy disappointment, and gloomy despair, all colliding
I battle with myself relentlessly but the harder I try, the harder things seem
It would be easier to give up
But can I
Even while I want to I can't seem to
My mind seems to say “No you must hold on!” and I can see that she is right
Even if I don't care for myself others care for me
Others want me to keep going
So I will but I'll struggle every step of the way trying to seem fine and keeping others around me oblivious to this war that is myself
