The Storm Will Not Define You [Spoken Word Poetry]

I wrote this poem when I was feeling depressed and the moment I started to want and pull myself back together. It’s hard to deal with depression, but sometimes motivational words and encouraging words can help 🙂

    I don’t feel loved I feel like a Castaway or like I’m just a problem to others I feel alone in my head and in this world I hope I can find some place to call home soon.
