Depression Poem

Stronger Than Depression

Sometimes our lives can take a road that leads to very dark places. Sometimes we find ourselves pushed into difficult places. Some may take a while to find their exit, their gate, their door to freedom. Some may just stop. But I believe it's strength of mind and soul that are our maps, our guides. Our inner strength can surprise us.

Stronger Than You

There you are, sneaking upon me!
From the corner of my eye, you make no sound, but I can see!

I ignore you're there, but you grow each day.
I fear if I acknowledge you, you will never go away.

I've seen the power you have over other people's lives,
I have seen their struggles and them strive

To keep you in check, to keep you at bay.
I've seen them give in and allow you to stay.

The confusion, the havoc you have played,
I have seen the pain and the price they've paid.

Swallowing them whole without a thought,
Like the helpless fish in the net when caught.

They squirm and wriggle to break free.
Yes, I see you there, but you won't take me.

I will not allow your darkness to consume,
I will not allow the cloud to linger and to loom.

I will fight you every day and every night,
Push away the dark, I will stay in the light.

I see you there waiting to pounce,
I will stand strong against your call, I will stand strong and denounce!

For all the sad, pain, and tears you feed upon,
Your call to me will forever be long.

As I have seen too many leave,
I know better, I believe...

In mind over matter, however dark the day,
Life is a better place when you're told to go away!

So move on and take your darkness too.
I am now stronger, Depression; I'm stronger than you!

ABOUT THE POET:

I love writing ...funny, sad, happy, whatever I'm feeling. It's a joy and I can leave behind all the noise of this world and go to places that make me feel, sometimes I cry, sometimes I laugh. It's therapeutic a lot ot of the time, life's journey can take us to places we didn't choose and writing helps me heal. I just like to put into words some of the things I feel, felt and dreamed of or wished for...that's the beauty I find out in writing.
