The Bottom (Original Poem written by Briana Derry)

Pure transparency. This is an original poem I wrote about a current life situation. Pray for me, and share your thoughts. You are not your mistakes.

The Bottom

I have felt myself , for a long time, sinking

“I can beat my mind”, is what I kept thinking

Depression, grief, anxiety – all so dreadful

Photo on

Therapy, family, all so helpful


Screamed for help, but not loud enough

She’s resillient, she’s educated, She’s tough

Until the bottom, I had to sit

A pole, I hit

Injuries, regret and a first offense

What is happening? I am not this dense

I am the example, I know what to do

But human I am, too

You are not your mistakes, don’t stop

If you ever hit the bottom, keep your eyes up to the top
