We all get depressed from time to time, here's how I handle it. God Bless, Luke

Depression

To Those Who Suffer

IT'S FOGGY THIS MORNING
ON THIS OCEAN BAY
LIGHTHOUSE HORN CALLS A WARNING
TO SHIPS ALONG THE WAY.

LAST NIGHT STARLIT SKIES
SPARKLED OVER THE TREES
WHILE FISHING AN OSPREY FLIES
KEEN EYES SEARCHING THE SEAS.

THE FOG HAS SETTLED IN
LIKE SOME DARK WET GLOOM
THE SUN CANNOT WIN
FOG HAS SEALED IT'S DOOM.

SUCH A CHANGE FROM EVENING
AS WE SAT OUT ON THE DECK
SO DAMP GREY AND DEPRESSING
MY SOUL IS SUCH A WRECK.

LIFE IS LIKE THE WEATHER
AND DEPRESSION IS IT'S FOG
FAITH IS YOUR BELLWEATHER
PRAYER WILL LIFT THE SMOG.

WE CAN'T CONTROL THE WEATHER
SO WE ADJUST EVERY DAY
JUST PULL ON A SWEATER
AND GO ABOUT OUR WAY.

NOW DEPRESSION'S NOT SO SIMPLE
AND I DO NOT TAKE IT LIGHT
BUT TO GOD IT'S JUST A DIMPLE
AND PRAYER WILL MAKE IT RIGHT.

USE FAITH AS YOUR SUNLIGHT
TO BRIGHTEN DREARY THOUGHTS
USE THE LORD'S PRAYER TO FIGHT
AS HAPPINESS IS SOUGHT.

NOW YOU MUST BELIEVE IN SOMETHING
TO GET THROUGH LIFE INTACT
WHEN BELIEF IN SELF IS LACKING
TRY FAITH IN GOD. IT'S A FACT.

Liked all your poems, but cannot remember the one about sweetness. Have to have some coffee cake, ice cream or cookies in house to eat since husband died Aug 7 07. He liked his sweets too. Good poetry you write and will keep in touch. Very inspiring it is too.

Luke your words truly inspire me to keep serving our Saviour and keep writing. He is so awesome in the way he allows your words to pierce the hearts of all you read, hear and listen.

Thanks for sharing! Be Blessed

Yes it is for ever good and perfect gut comes from the Lord and faith without works is dead. God bless you once again.
Reviewed by Andre Bendavi ben-YEHU

This poem brings energy to ignite the dynamo of creation.
"DEPRESSION" is indeed an "ASCENSION" for its contents and
message.

Thank You, Poet!

Beware the Winds of Doctrine by Henry Miranda

A Christian should be grounded and rooted in the word of God, if not, he is prone to be dispersed or destroyed by the winds of doctrine..
