I used to suffer from depression quite badly and because of this for five years of my life became agoraphobic. Its only now I am starting to take the steps to getting out on my own. This poem was written because of that.

I am scared, I am terrified of the world outside my door,

but at the same time, I am yearning, desperate, wanting so much more,

Then this life within these four white walls,

God give me strength, give me the balls,

Taking it gradually, one step at a time,

One day soon my life will be mine,

walking out the front door to the end of the lane,

then walking a little further and then back again,

this voice that screams go back inside,

go back to that room, go back and hide,

I dont want to listen, I want to push through,

I want to be happy, not depressed and so blue,

I just for once want to have faith in me,

I am doing it, I am out there, I am breaking free.
