Sinking - Poem by Holly Heron

Sinking further into depression,
Can't keep my head above this ocean,
I just can't fight its downwards pull,
Feeling weights tied to my feet,
The more I fight the further I go,
But I just can't fight the current,
Can't float above the surface anymore,
I'm drowning in its darkness,
Continually sinking,
Not far from the bottom now,
Then I'm gone,
Lost to this sea of never ending depression
