Depression

A Poem By Damaris Ann // 11/29/2016

In deep darkness; my quiet place
A sloggish rest, a somber face
Pursuing peace in darkest hour
Bitter at this life so sour
A breach of joy this time has been
A time of sorrow prone to sin
A time for me to stunt or grow
Sorrow I reap when tears I sow
A haze, a fog, a blinded spree
Misty unrest is all I see
I wallow in this filthy maize
I cry alone; sorrow for days
A finger reaches to my eye
Tears are wiped, my eyes are now dry
I thank my friend who's comfort prone
For through their love I now am shown
That I can walk and find my rest
To have a friend is to be blest

"Sorrow I reap when tears I sow"... beautiful and deep line! This is an amazing poem! I love it and the meter is perfect! Sorry, for these past few weeks I've loved to get technical about poetry... never mind. Anyway, I love this!

I am an overcomer through Christ alone, for the glory of God alone.

Damaris, read this awhile ago and finally commented now.
Your rhythm has improved so much! This had a rocking flow.
I loved especially these parts:
A time of sorrow prone to sin
A time for me to stunt or grow

Misty unrest is all I see -"misty unrest"

and I love how in a few words you brought in the fact that it's important to have a friend and not walk alone.

Thanks for sharing your heart--hope that you can find great joy this month! :)
