                            A MOMENT OF RACING THOUGHTS

   In my world of confusion,I am stuck in a deep hole
of sadness.I have so much to be happy for yet my
mind spirals downward constantly.My sadness over
comes my ability to enjoy the many good things that
I have.Depression is a silent killer that will haunt you.
Some people just don't understand.My heart goes out
to others but has no feeling for myself.My thoughts 
and feelings are said through my words.Sometimes
anger steps in.I am often misunderstood and unable
to accept kindness from others.I have so much love
to give and expect none in return.As long as I am
alive I will do my best to help someone in need.
There is one question that no one will ever have an
answer for.What is normal?In this world of confusion,
I will always be stuck in a deep hole of sadness.

    Walk away and say goodbye to that confusion that is a lie. That deep depression deep in your soul can't be allowed to take it's toll. A path that takes a different turn. Begins today with what we learn. That futile cloud can dissapate. Trust in God, it's not too late. Peace and Prayers. :) Hi Colleen, give me a comment. Thanks. :)

    ADear Colleen after my divorce I lived in depression for three years . I know how it feels P D knows also . I was just like you . Not knowing if I was going to live the next day .one day I asked the lord to take that feeling away . And slowly he did .little by little he did .today I'm well . Saddness is not depression . April brought me sadness . But life was the reason for depression . Ask god to take it away . And believe .

    hello, Colleen. I sure hope that coming here is helping you to feel a little better? Is it? I loved how you said in this poem that as long as you are alive, you will do your best to help someone in need. Losing yourself in the service of others is supposed to bring you joy!

    Can I just say- there is no such thing as normal... and even if there was- I would avoid it like the plague! You are not only an amazing poet, but an amazing person. I love your poem, keep writing! :)

    Good afternoon Colleen, much to search for in the hole of sadness... I wonder why you are always misunderstood.... you have been an uplifting person in my life these past few days. And don't worry about the answer to what is normal? I myself don't know what normal is... confused is my perfect state of mind right now... I guess I'm okay with this phase... always~ Linda

    Dear Colleen,Hope this finds YOU and YOURS Healthy and High in the Spirit." Depression is a silent killer"'My Heart goes out to others but has no feelings for myself"these quotes are the crux of this Magnificent Master- Piece.For me finding feelings for myself,learning to LOVE myself for what I am.YOU will have to learn to LOVE Yourself.I remember a POEM YOU wrote when YOU became a GrandMother again;use the spark in that POEM to start YOUR journey of self LOVE be mindful of the good in YOURLIFE
