The drip-dry feeling of depression
hit me once as a child
I moved about and set forth on my way
through life
Then again it was back
the depression that I thought that I had lost so long ago
As I turn with all
the problems of the world
resting on my back
I let the depression in
I let it seep into my soul
and take over my life
The depression follows me always
carries me- holds me-
hurts me
For awhile I enjoyed it
I like being overcome by a feeling
that I couldn't control
Then it started to bring me down
choke me- suffocate me-
drown me
It wanted to be me
I wanted it to be me
As I slept a light hit me
told me to follow it
To feel it
As I followed
I found myself again
as if all a dream to feel so low
so worthless- so unloved
It was all in my head
The light calls my name and
releases a mystery to me
A life yet unknown before
It fills me with joy and
makes me whole again
A voice tells me to live in the light
love the light
be the light
share the light
Suddenly, I didn't feel like me
I felt like it
lighter, more free, more intelligent
I realize that it wasn't a dream
My life had changed for the better
It hasn't changed back since
The touch of the light
helps me to understand things
Things that all seems a fantasy to me
I feel all brand new
as I take my first step back into
The Light.

Love,
Lady




 Live in my world just once and you'll find yourself enraptured.

LadyCat~

'I feel all brand new'

What a refreshing feeling
it must be for you.  
The joy at having found the light ...
shines in this piece.
May it always be so.

Kitty, it's good to see you post again, and soon, very soon, your life will be changed once again.  So sayeth Unca Ali.
