Overcoming Depression #2


Whenever I am feeling:
sad, lonely, or blue;
I close my eyes
my special friend, and
think of you. I have
complete freedom from despair,
whenever you are there by
my side, to lead and
guide my footsteps
in my life.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

There is one major difference between the two peoms about over coming depression. During the first version, I mentioned God, whereas, in version number two I did not. What is the reason for refering to, 'my special friend, ' instead of God?

I will answer my own question. Version number two was written for a publication called, 'The Voice, ' which is a secular newsletter published by The Cliff Bailey Peer Support Center at Compass Health. Therefore any references to God are not really allowed.

The reason why is very clear: the inproper useage of the 'Doctrine of Seperation of Church and State' even affects a mental health facility such as Compass Health. Isn't that terrible! I plan on correcting any spelling mistakes latter on.
