A Poem

August 26, 2015

In the last couple of days, some amazing friends of mine reminded me that it is the little victories that I must focus on. Whether it’s being able to make a real dinner for my family for the first time in a couple of weeks, cleaning up something that has just been too hard for me to tackle lately, or making it a full day at work. Sometimes it’s as simple as getting my hair washed. Some of the hardships that come with depression are very ugly. Without a clear topic in my head this week for a blog I decided to write a poem.



In the winks of an eye

A hand wave goodbye

Little by little many parts of me died


Dredging daily through pain

So much of me dripping in shame

Waiting impatiently to surface again


Where did me go

You are somewhere out there I know

Relying on faith, time, purpose and hope.


A broken life taught

A better one now sought

And getting it depends on how hard I’ve fought.


Escaping is what appears right

When things are so far out of sight

All the while life is in mid flight


Come back to me

Please set me free

I’m dying inside just yearning to be


Peace comes and goes

The memories now froze

Of a time that has changed me more than you know
