Nowhere left to fall


I have no where left to fall.
Except to the clutches of depression and suicide.
Oh my dear God how life can seem like a slide.
I can't fall anywhere soft.

I have no one to fall into their arms.
I can't be happy only sad.
But I don't really no why anymore.
In my heart my sadness is in store.

My life used to be mine.
Now it belongs to depression.
And the evil forces from beyond

    Dear Amy,
    I too have had to deal with depression-all my life. Thank God I have found a satisfactory way to control it, and am faithful to take my meds every day so I can live like a normal human being. Please read my poem, 'To My Survivors.' I began writing it one day when I was depressed, and as I was writing, my spirits began to lift, until as I finished it, I realized I was not depressed! Of course, that was not the last time I ever struggled with my disorder, but for the last several years I have been stable and happy, in spite of major problems that might make others give up hope. I hope you are seeing a counselor. God bless you! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
