Breaking Depression

in chapters

I am mountainous
pledging my allegiance 
to the jungle of
walls I am made of.

2.
Please, 
build me a river
or a raft,
craft it
with your 
finest woods,
let the barriers be fierce
I. am.

b r e a k i n g

3.
I am floating now
I am watching 
the walls I built
t r i c k l e
d o w n s t r e a m
reminding me
this too shall pass,
this too shall pass.

*I’m currently attempting The Dirty Thirty; a month of poetry in April triggered by prompts for National Poetry Month. Some will appear here, others won’t*

Prompt: write about your experience with depression, write it in chapters 1,2 & 3
