One Reply to “just because i haven’t drowned doesn’t mean i’m not sinking by Charlotte Berry”

  1. People never take the time to read the signs. We spend our lives depending on others to notice, but we are on our own.

    I’d love to say this is a beautiful poem (it’s beautifully written, at least), but there’s nothing beautiful about feeling that you’re already drowning when you are still struggling to survive. It feels like giving up.
    But, you know? We don’t really give up. Every time you wake up in the morning, you’ve successfully managed to give yourself another chance. I know, between the fangs of depression, it doesn’t feel like giving life a chance. It feels like we’re just going to endure yet another day of chewing and gnashing on our lives. But hey, once you reach the bottom, everything else can only point upwards.
