Even though I’ve dealing with the depression better, it’s still there like a dark shadow. There are times that I doubt that I will ever beat this. I’ve learned that in a way I can use my experience of this shadow to bring light into others lives.
There are moments when all I can do is cry, at these times I remember that each tear is a healing tear. Sometimes even when I’m smiling and laughing on the outside, crying on the inside. These days are days I cherish, they show that I’m alive.
The dark shadow, over my life
Blotting out the light
Following my every move
Always there, always near
The dark shadow, trying to cover me
Stifling my light
Always here, always around
The dark shadow, I know your there
But the light of my heart
Shining bright, cutting through
Slowly going, shadow gone
