Despair {Depression}

DESPAIR (DEPRESSION)

Times in life,
Or whole life through,
This thing in your mind
Makes living less true.
Wake in the morning,
Want to be great.
Then this thing wakes too
And says stop and wait.
Belief in yourself?
What a farce!
Next you’ll think
You’re one of life’s stars.
This thing stays with you
The whole day long,
Beats at your mind;
Fight to be strong.
But even when good
Chances to come your way,
IT whispers inside you
Fool, it’s not going to stay.
Taking your energy,
Your whole body weak,
No matter what dreams,
Can never reach the peak.
If you don’t know it
Stop and thank God!
If you don’t know it
Stop and thank God!
But for us that do,
God seems far away,
Can’t seem to find him
No matter what day.
Like a cloak of dark
Surrounds so complete,
The light of God
Can’t seem to compete.
So why go on
And hurt so much?
This daily question
Uses us up.
Where is the answer?
Why can’t we feel good?
We pray and pray
And wish we could.
But times in life,
Or whole life through,
This thing in your mind
Makes living less true.
When you feel like a fake
From morning to night,
You stay with yourself
Cause you have no right
To be around
The ones who are true,
Even if they love you
And you love them too.
So life is lonely
But no one can see.
Hurt only yourself,
Leave loved ones free.
I see no answer
As years go by,
But wake each day,
Go out and try.
Such is life
Lived with despair,
Can’t seem to find
A way to repair.
There is no answer
That I can see,
But pray each day
That I too could be free.
