"Forever and ever babe"


This depression wants to consume me and sometimes I think it has. The sun I feel is hidden under a mound of clouds along with my heart. My family misses who I've always been, the love of my life falls apart at the sound of my lonely and strangered voice. This may be a time in my life where nothing feels as if hope is in the air, but I know that God is there. He is there everywhere I go and have been. He stands next to me as I put on my makeup in the morning, he has his arm around me as I cry the tears of fear. He seems to be nothing to some of the world, but he is my ultimate fighter, he is my angel, my guard that protects me at night. He is my hope for tonight, for the future to come. My father is my pillow I lean on, and I am his precious daughter. The girl who sins but he always forgives.

This piece comes straight from the heart. Depression is something I struggle with in the fall and usually this is when i write my best poems. This is exactly how I felt at 9:31 pm. tonight. No barriers, no shields just from the heart.

I know exactly how you feel. I was diagnosed with Situational Depression and Anxiety a couple months ago. No one really understands what its like to feel as if the world is falling down around you.

I can relate, except I screamed at god for doing this to me. I'm pretty much okay with him now, but I do still grouch at him like I would to my parents if I wasn't scared of them getting mad at me.

I really enjoy this because how you said "But I know that God is here," because you where relating to your dad. Also I really like how you said, " He stands next to me as I put on my makeup in the morning," because even though he isn't there, he still is. Really great paper.

I'm pretty sure she meant God when she talked about her dad. I could be wrong though. Great poem.
