Prevail

Here I am,
just existing.

Clock in, Clock out,
each day like the last –
mundane.

Not a smile nor wince
across this surface.
Until…

The light was uncovered,
in the labyrinth midst
luminously  shining.

Each day a new feat,
bringing with it
a cheerful glee.

Here I am,
living.


 

Angel Wings

Today was the day that depression won,
because the world was too heavy.

Each day another battle was waiting,
body too heavy to move out of bed.

The gloomy cloud darkens above
as it rains harder through the day.

This world beat her down too far
leaving her weak and famished.

Today was the day that depression won
and she gained her wings leaving behind
children, family, and friends weeping.


Recently a dear family friend fought a hard battle with depression and a variety of other things. The family friend gave her life because she wasn’t able to control life anymore. If you or anyone you know that is suffering with depression or suicidal thoughts reach out to the suicide hotlines or movements. To Write Love On Her Arms is a great movement. Take care all.
