So Much

Posted by on March 20, 2016

A poem about my aching, but unfulfilled, desire to tell my children about my depression and beg forgiveness for how it makes me behave:

So Much

So much I want to say
So much going on in my head
So much I can’t express
So much I’m sorry for

So much anger
So much frustration
So much fear
So much anxiety

So much failure
So much disappointment
So much sadness
So much emptiness

So hard to explain
So little confidence
So afraid to frighen
So lacking tears

So they don’t know
