The Fight Determination to remove your force of despondency. That osmosis of my joy being leeched through your membrane of anxiety to a cavern of what if’s and if only’s preventing the next step, the positive thought due to the never- ending saturation of the negative. Maybe moment by moment, cell by cell is all I can fight to exchange this pessimism for optimism, so that my existence moves towards the light of happiness, defeating the empty thoughts and lies that try to drag me into darkness. Dark flowers of foreboding may lay hidden, shaded and mushroom-like under logs and fallen leaves of disquiet and worry, creating shadow, trying to remove the sunlight, hoping to replace the blue forest flowers I grow. But I won’t give up, for light always overcomes darkness.

I hope the poem makes you know u r not alone. Sometimes these things can be a gift as we dig deep within ourselves and thus can see things in different ways. Keep digging upwards to the sun, not down. Blessings to you

The pessimist sees a bottle half empty. The optimist sees a bottle half full. A lot of passion and determination can be seen in your lovely poem. There are a lot of people faced with this fight and this will be very meaningful to them. Thanks.

So so true!!! It's very hard to get out of darkness, when you fall into the pit of darkness. It's a long struggle to get out to see the light. So we have to fight not to fall in. Thank you for voicing it out in a lovely way, a poem. Nicely written.

Relationships wax and wane with emotion, but to be overwhelmed by another's anxiety is unhealthy. Your write is quite thought provoking.

Interesting you saw this as another's anxiety, indeed that would be unhealthy and i am pleased that the poem caused you to see that view and pause for thought. I get depression and i fight against it so this is a personal poem . The hope is i believe that light does always over come darkness. Thank you for reading and commenting. Much appreciated.
