Depression Poem by Howard The Motivational Poet Simon


Rating: 5.0

Little drops of water from the distant past
Ripples rushes and runs into today
Deluge of impotence overflowing

Ubiquitous desert scorches the mind
Energy production constipated
Pessimistic Ideation ruling

Dark yesterday intoxicates today
Fermented disappointment holding sway
In a sad suffocating sea swimming

You captured the essence of depression with that write...Fermented disappointment holding sway... Deluge of impotence... Pessimistic Ideation ruling... the water image was perfect for your purpose- -]Little drops of water from the distant past / Ripples rushes and runs into today. Excellent write about a tragic illness that holds too many captive.

At the essence, within the sadness they look out of darkened windows believing all that they see to be as dark as the mind behind the eyes that survey the world outside.

Very accurate indeed, Howard. Your poem clearly captures just how overwhelming depression can be - like a sea that seems impossible to swim one's way out of. Well done! ~
