Poetry Today, Songs Tomorrow

Category Archives: Depression

Time tells its own fate
tomorrow brings such sorrow
endlessly existing as meek and disparaging
we earnestly seek a glimpse of a sky
filled with your eye of beauty surrounding in rays
that kiss the clouds, she resembles duty to life
happiness lay on the edge of the horizon
and stars embrace even the soundest doubt with levitation
lifting the waves through the air of the storm
brings every leaf to stir and every branch to break
I pour myself into thee expecting to dream
of something that tugs at the core of my soul
screaming at thy winds that blow and destroy every
flower in sight, such devastation and misery unto thee
reaching from the pits of despair for hope that seems to bare
its face to thee, drifting through deception
I conceive only of thy light absent in the sky
leaves the waking hour to hide
and settles only a shower of what binds me to life.

Depression

Lord, my life is such a gift

Don’t let me miss out on it

You take me to the shadows of the darkness

And push me to take heart of a new me

One I don’t like

Press in me better decisions than yesterday

Bear with me every last escape

And never let me take the easy way out

Forgive me for my train of thoughts

Instill courage as I see the truth

Be in harmony with me

And charm me into a new conception

I need you more than ever right now

Today and tomorrow

Keep me strong


Refusal

I take from me the depth of despair

and force it into the air

Let it float as I now focus

On boats sailing in the seas

And let it be different this time with you and me

I know my care is fair to say in your hands

Lord grant me the strength to always do your will

And give me the power to blossom my flower of life.


Mercy

Lord you use me as a shield against satan

And i yield to your truth As it fills my youth

In such harmony Are my ways So pure

Always regarding My years to come

You offer me righteousness With your son

Let it be your will I am won

With every word In my mind

So as to find What blesses me so

Is my will And let it shine Through my days

As you bind Me to your word

Use me and give me glory

I seek you And my heart is only

A part of my Sun that offers rays

And shines through All my ways

In your days With me

Give me Your mercy


Lord, take from me thoughts that don’t become me

Help me say every nice thing I think

And call me to be someone encouraging again

So many nights I lay awake in worry

Help me stay proper in you

And wash away my fears


Ups and downs

Lord, you kiss my forehead

And I shed my fears

So much love you offer me

Always hovering over me Are your angels

So many angles play into my picture of life

Let me take a moment to day thank you

For the ups and downs of life

And let them play into what is right about me


Resilience

Lord, show me that through this depression is the mold

 that holds it’s passion to a new level

And resist in me anger that so often succeeds

Bless me and lead me in to the depth of success
