(Depression Poems – Mental Illness)
A glimmer of light in the darkness of night
the sun has been born once again.
Anguish and stress are hardly a test
as you struggle and fight with your brain.
Somethings not right, I’m losing this fight
my thoughts are becoming all scattered.
Sprung like a gun with no place to run
My mind is unstuck and tattered.
I’m left in a wreck at the stern of the deck
in an ocean of waves I can’t fight.
where calmness once reigned, has now all but drained
giving way to the darkness of night.
This path was a trap, one without map
my seafaring skills are awry.
I cannot forbade the mistakes that get made
when my mind has led me astray.
