un-merry-go-round

Depressives, of all people, know

that you can never truly lift yourself out

of your situation.

You may do so for a time,

but ultimately you will fall back

into the same thoughts

& patterns of behavior,

Not because you are weak,

but because you are fighting against yourself;

and in a civil war, nobody wins.

 

No, in order to win, to ultimately escape

you must reach out beyond yourself

to nature, to community, and to God

 

Let them know you exist

and be in fellowship with them.

Feel the warm Sun on your face

and know that you are loved.

 

Only then will you truly be

free!
