'Sea of Depression'

I will not go quietly I will not wallow in self pity I want to stand up I want to stand out I don’t want to spiral into That web of darkness I want to get up and smile again In spite of the negativity that's drawing me in I want to hear a child's laughter And smile knowing that I will get there too I will once again smile As if it is my very breath I will fight this I will not drown In this sea of depression

    What a very empowering poem you've penned here, Missy...depression can be such a struggle, but yes, if one can find that strength within, one can hone that and rise above. Yet another inspiring poem from you, Missy Busy :)!

    Yes, we all have to swim in it from time to time. that seems the case for me anyway, but I love the positive message at the end. you always come through with your positivity.

    I can see this was written from a fortified soul that has been empowered by God the almighty himself, how precious you are to him, and what an inspired verse this is, it gives hope to us all, keep leading us dear Wilma, we need a fired spirit such as yours on this site, loving hugs, x
