The death of Sadness

The deadly pains of sadness
A severe kind of madness,
From my head to my toes
Puts added pressure to all my woes.

Like cancer that spread to my every bone
Like arthritis it felt, turning me into stone,
It followed me everywhere, like a tall dark shadow
It almost turned me, into a lonely widow.

Desperation made me think that the end was near
Had to find an alternative to end my fear,
Paranoia I found, was my middle name
Had to kill it still, which was the main game.

Slowly but surely I poisoned it down
Until there was no more course to drown,
The sudden perception I had of happiness
Impregnated with joy gave rise to my completeness.

I gave birth to a new bundle of bliss
The special moments to come, I don’t want to miss,
Every blessing to be counted, that’s given from above
My antidote for sadness is a whole lot of new Love.
