Carry Me – a Song by Catholic Anonymous

Music

Of all the videos I have put up on my YouTube Channel so far, the one I did putting footage to a song I recorded has done about two or three times better than the others. It seems to be what people are more interested in seeing.

In light of that, I’ve taken another song I wrote, Carry Me, and put footage to it as well.

I wrote Carry Me a few months ago trying to capture what it’s like being in the throws of depression. I say “trying” because I haven’t ever suffered with it myself, but my wife did for years. In an attempt to maybe understand her more and sympathize (and also just write a good song) I put this together.

If I’m honest, though, it also has a bit of myself in there. It’s partly about dealing with sin and needing the release of confession – needing to lighten the load on my conscience. If I don’t go to the priest in reconciliation after awhile, I feel spiritually heavy.

That being said, guilt goes hand in hand with depression, too.

Whatever the case, in addition to a good therapist and maybe medication, God is someone we should run to in the middle of storms like this. He is someone who can help carry us through it.

If you are someone who deals with depression or any other kind of mental illness, I would say, be careful listening to this song. It might trigger unhelpful emotions.

It also might encourage you, though. Or it might not have any impact at all. Still, I feel the need to give the warning. You can read the lyrics here, if you would like a heads-up before listening.

  1. This is absolutely beautiful. Thank you for following me; I love meeting other Catholic artists. I’d like to help promote you and Catholic art! Would you be interested in an interview or guest post on writecatholic?

  2. Of course! I’ll do that when I get on the computer.

    Well I’ve been focusing a lot on stories about the saints but in your case I’d like to know more about you as a Catholic artist, so anything in that realm works!

  3. Sounds good! I’ll come up with some questions.

    I was wondering if you could help spread the hashtag #2021BeNotAfraid in your social media posts this coming year. I’m using it on Twitter and Instagram. I truly believe we need to enter a new year with the courage of Christ, and positive things like this song for instance are just the thing such a hashtag would need!
