I Will Survive (A Poem)

It grips ever so tight
It has me in a vice
Like a mouse
Caught by surprise
By a cat that was just lurking outside
Depression grips me and won't let go
A forced smile comes out wrong
Like my brain is not in control
Lead in my stomach is dragging me down
I'm in a vortex about to drown
But I don't give up
Force the wrong smile on
Force my brain in control
Roll my shoulders up
Puff my chest out
The lead won't drag me down
I swim against the tide
Determined to survive
Depression will not get the best of me
Because even a mouse caught by surprise
Can run and hide
And with this determination I carry on
Until the sun shines and I am not sad anymore
