What I want to say

A poem detailing a youthful person’s silent struggle with despair.

– Muskaan Admani

When another person asks how I am

I want to say

I seriously do come to feel




And like

     A stress

This d e p r e s s i o n

Is a ravenous parasite

Sucking out all the mild

I have remaining

I have missing my sight.

I want to say

That my views

Are incessantly pushing body weight from my shoulders

And that is why I shake occasionally

I am relentlessly fighting a boxing match

That you are unable to see

But my power

Is now fleeting.

I want to say


     S m i l i n g

Has turn out to be a

Magic trick

But I’m likely the worst


You know


I am a master at


All is high-quality.

I want to say

That I am

     D r o w n i n g

These walls are caving in

And I no more time know how to endure

It can be like I’m seeking to swim

But my hands and toes are tied.

I want to say

That this sadness

Has contaminated my lungs

So breathing has turn into an

     A b o m i n a t i o n.

I want to say

That daily life has torn

At the verge of my energy

I am  n u m b 

I am  e m p t y.

My grave

Is this physique.

But I would alternatively not ravage

Someone’s mood

With my  t r a g i c  h o n e s t y

So I goof absent

Like anything is a laughing subject

And I say a thing suitable, like:

“I am alright. How are you?”

No matter if you are wanting for help for your personal psychological well being at university or supporting a pal, enable is offered

Good day! I am Muskaan, a Psychology Undergraduate from Queen Mary University of London. I am at present on my placement calendar year operating in a college. I am sharing my ordeals by poetry – a medium that has served me throughout my struggles of mental wellbeing, with the hope to enable and inspire other people.
