Depression Vexed

Depression Vexed


Breach the cage and embrace the outside

Break out from the one room isolation

Do not allow the onslaught of depression

A walk in the sun is to defy the inside

Keenly protect self-esteem -- eschew drink

So easy to fall Codeine insidious invader

Helper on one hand then turns to raider

Disrupts sleep and mood then starts a sink


Deflect urges and cravings -- busy the brain

Indulge the hobby pound the keyboard again

Go on-line meet a band of brothers for support

Depression is losing again much confusion

It has come and lost twice consternation

I have fought and won twice -- jubilation

Author's Notes:
Thank you to all the wonderful friends I have made on site.  I am not giving in to old demons and am battling depression and winning.  Thanks to you all...

Congratulations on writing an exquisite poem and especially for winning against the enemies.  Which one of us has not been there?  Seems we live in a war-zone;  and yet, we poets are constantly faced with taking off our armor and baring ourselves to the wild elements...  yes, it's a harder yarn -- but well worth it, what?  --David

PS  So happy you use a larger font -- so much easier on my eyes.  Now... if you could make it darker...   (if you need help I can try to explain how...(don't go there)).
