A Poem About Life

A poem I'd written for others out there like me that's been depressed to the point of feeling as though life should end and what words and thoughts of encouragement can help us to know why it's not the answer and that life does get better. Also to let others know that there are a lot of others out there that suffer from depression and they are not alone.


We all got a life of
Thoughts we just don't know
How to react to them
Or how to even show

Sometimes we get angry
Or react with a little more
Or choose to talk about them
Or just plain ignore

What we will do next
We sometimes choose to share
Or act on our thoughts
Like we just don't even care

Sometimes we choose the help
And find the ways to cope
Or just expect the answers to come
Or just plain have no hope

Some of lived a hurtful life
Some of us had everything
Even though not everyone says it
We've all lived a life with some pain

Some a life of alcohol
Some a life of drugs
Some a life of hatred
Some a life of hugs

We've all had our excitements
We've all had our downs
We've all had our smiles
And we've all had our frowns

And none of you are bad in the eyes of the Lord
For all of us a helping hand we should lend
And if you ask Christ as your Savour
There's a warming light we can enter in the end

And have you ever stopped and thought that maybe
We're all hurting in a way
And that everyone needs a friend
To help us through each day

LIFE PG. 2 of 2

When you think of your troubles
And say you want to die
And you think it's the only way
It's a total lie

Because there's lots of things in life
That we still have yet to learn
And the reason we're all still standing
Is because God says it isn't our turn!!!
