Getting through Christmas - Poem about the Holiday Blues
Do you feel sad around the holidays?
Many people feel sad or depressed around the holidays--for different reasons, of course. Some have lost loved ones, and going through the holidays without them can be a very bleak time. Others get stressed and tired from all the expectations and demands of the holidays. Since many see the holiday season as a joyful and fun time, they don't understand the hopeless feelings of others.
Empathy from those who do understand can be a great help as people realize that others may be experiencing similar feelings, feelings that are often dark and unacceptable to many. Perhaps knowing that there are others out there who feel the same can help those affected to trudge through and just get through their periods of sadness. For some, just getting through this time of year may be all they can hope for--at least for now. Getting past it, feeling relief, and hoping that the future brings something better...that's enough.
I Could Cry
I could cry
I can’t cry
Hate this time
And cheery elves
Walk on by
Bags and boxes
Pet the dog
Cup of coffee
One more day
Just get by
