Depression - Poem by Donna Nimmo

Don't want to live
Don't want to die
Sometimes I just need to cry
So I get out paper and pen
Once again depression sneaking in
I'm so lost within my soul
Pain from the past, trying to control
Darkness trying to steal my light
Trying to turn my day, into night
Got myself a brand new life
Need to bury the past, keep out the strife
My mind I struggle with from day to day
Please make the bad stuff, go away
They say that time heals all pain
Will my day come, or is it all in vain?
So once more I need to write
And maybe later, my day turn bright.

    found your site today, and impressed with your posts.
    I became interested in poetry just 3 years ago, and
    believe it or not it was because of anxiety and depression
    losing my childhood sweetheart being married 55 years,
    I was advised by consule to write my thoughts and just keep
    a journal I started to record my thoughts and they started to
    rhyme and that was my start, I have written more than 100
    Haiku's and hundreds of poems, I started writting of pain, than self pity, than
    I started to see the forest, the birds and the bee's and compassion
    for the downtrodden, my outlook on life is so beautiful thank God, I found
    poetry, now on poemhunter I find a whole world at my fingertips. I will put
    you as a favorite and read all your work,
    Charles Garcia (Caifornia USA)
