A poem on depression and its very nature. It can be fought. Its just a phase. Its just a state of mind that can be changed in a jiffy!
When everything goes down the hill ,
and the world around you becomes still,
it is darkness with whom you’ve to fight ,
and defeat it for the glory of light,
Don’t whack yourself out and stay doomed out and dull,
there’s definitely a way out there back from the null.
Only to realize it was all in your head,
“I swear to god darkness , I’ll drop you dead!”
“You can’t escape this misery” , whispered a voice from the dark,
I retorted back with a smile and a mighty spark.
It was just another day of invasion from the void ,
And I had fought ruthlessly without getting paranoid!
The battle was over ,
like a phoenix I’d risen,
In moments like this,
Its your instincts to whom you should listen.
Depression is evil , and it is horrendous too!
It can be fought back with ease , get the warrior out in you!
The one who has survived heartbreaks and death ,
and the mighty one who will fight till the last earthly breath!
One fine day , when you look back..you’ll realize it was all worth it.
Don’t let few minutes of anxiety , paranoia and hopelessness take a toll on your life.
Darkness is everywhere around the universe. Harness your golden cosmic energy , sweet child of divine!
