Meaningful Poem

Feelings And Perspective

I've struggled with depression most of my life. I tend to see the worst in things and often need to be reminded of things most people do naturally. This short poem is one of those reminders. A great tragedy occurs when the bad days numb us to the good ones. Try to enjoy the good days, because they don't last that long. Try not to fear the bad days, because they won't last that long. Whether time is currently your friend or foe, however it can help you today, remember today won't last that long.

A Day Away

Some feelings are shallow, some feelings are deep.
Some makes us smile, some make us weep.

Some we love, some we don't.
Some we'll savor, some we won't.

Some grounding, some uplifting,
Some long-lasting, some constantly shifting.

No matter what feelings I'm feeling today,
I know tomorrow is only a day away.

I, too, have dealt with depression most of my life. I have learned two things. Feelings are just that. They are fleeting. They come and they go. I have also learned to rely on my rock, my faith. I fought my belief for a long time, wanting to control my depression myself. I realized it was something I could not do by myself. So, I died to myself and gave my life over to God. Together, day by day, we fight, struggle and conquer. On most days, I have peace. On the days I don't, we weather the storm together. Knowing I am not alone makes all the difference. When you said tomorrow is only a day away, you write truth.
