Overcoming Depression #1

Whenever I am feeling:
lonely, sad, or blue;
dear Heavenly Father,
I am free to seek
my solace from despair
from you.

Whenever I am so
fatiqued, I find
all the necessary
strength that I need.

Whenever sleep won't
come I need not count sheep
just praise the Lord for a
good night's sleep!

'When I'm worried and can not
sleep, I count my blessings
instead of sheep. And I fall
asleep counting my blessings.

When my bank roll is getting
small, I think of when I
had none at all. And I
fall asleep counting my blessings...'

Poet's Notes about The Poem

There is only difference between the two versions: 'I quoted more of
Bing Crosbys song he sang during the musical White Christmas, which is one of the best classical movies of all time.

My Compass Health counselor, Greg Richardson, has been after me for a long period of time about writing a poem about over coming depression.
Hopefully this poem, and my tips about writing poetry as a self taught
poet will aid you in writing your own poetry.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
