A Troubled Mind - Poem by Jonathan Goldman a.k.a JGthepoet

Whither, yonder and beyond
Seeks the troubled mind
Like ripples moving on a pond
With scarce a look behind.

Problems, worries and more besides
Creep forever to the fore
And scarce a thought which pacifies
Remove the problems forever more.

Depression overcomes me fast
And clears away but slow
One hopes that it will not last
When problems bigger grow.
