Better Days



He thought of better days
those with his family
they were close
truly happy
times change
children get busy
time seems so fleeting
then came the sudden loss
death seems so cruel
one’s never ready
feeling alone
depression hits
life isn’t important
trying to move forward
one foot before the other
finding hope to share
giving of oneself
feeling again
reaching out
words to express
putting them all together
stanza by stanza
feelings out

    I like this one of real life….sad…but not as sad with each step forward….
    Thank you for sharing…..
    Take Care….You Matter…..

  4. Wow, very effective visual form. Once I read the word “depression” I felt the expanding and contracting lines as gyrations of emotional states. Nice. (:
