Depression is Back

Updated on June 26, 2014


The depression is back, I can feel it set in,

Do I want to fight it, Or just let it win?

The strength is is not mine, To make it go away,

I don't feel like fighting, Not today.

Maybe tomorrow, I'll give it a try,

But right now, I just want to cry.

I'll be tough tomorrow, I'll put on my show,

That's what I always do, That's the "me" they know.

"Tough, single mom", That's what the world knows,

But that's not really me, Inside, the sadness grows.

I'm sure I'll be fine, I'll be happy one day,

A bit of hope is still left, I can still pray!

      This is a very good poem about depression. I especially like the test at the end so the reader can see where he or she is currently rating in the depression scale. Wonderful piece, indeed.

      Depression, real, clinical depression, is a scary place to be.

      I do not allow myself the luxury of going there...ever again.

      A poem plumbing the depths of depression - so very hard to live with but something that can always be overcome with help. Thank you for sharing.

      Depression seems to rob a person of the fullness of life that most non-depressed people enjoy.

      I love the way you are so open about your feelings, and how you are willing to dissect them in your poetry. But most of all, I love how you always see hope through this difficult time that will pass. Bravo!

      Yes there is always hope!!!!! My faith in God gets me through the tough times. When I am feeling depressed or sad I can go to God in prayer and before you know it He has lifted me out of it. It is the most amazing thing!!! Blessings.

      Evil is not real, and its appearance has no power!

      There is always hope, always a door somewhere that will let in a little light -- go for the light. Face your demons and overcome, rise above -- it can be done when you talk with others who understand. Very good poem that expresses what many feel during depression.

      Depression can certainly sneak up on us. We have the power of God to overcome it.
