When will I find the light


When will I find the light


What’s at the end of this depressing tunnel I call my life?


Is it more darkness or will I find the light?


Right now I’m so blinded by all my sorrow I don’t know which way to go.


Is the light left or do I go right, how will I ever know?


I feel like I’m running in circles I’m so confused!


Will I break this darkness or am I gonna lose?


Time seems to be less on my side as time goes by.


I feel like there’s nothing left to do but fall to the ground and cry.


I feel myself getting weaker by the hour.


I’m losing my strength and I’m losing my power.


I feel like giving up but I can’t I have to go on!


I can’t let this life beat me I have to be number one!


But what else can I do? I’m lost in this darkness of depression.


As these dark sad days go by my chances are lessened.


When will I get to the end? When will my dreams come true?


When will I be free to break through?


And find the light that will shine down on my life anew!




This was written some time ago when I was feeling really down I found it and decided to put it on here. Don't worry I'm feeling a lot better now!

Depression is a terrible state and not easily overcome. Many say to just "get over it" or to "get out and stay busy" but it is not that simple. Even people strong in faith and relationship with Jesus can struggle with this issue. I am very glad you are in a good state of mind and emotions now. Bless you!
