Fay Slimm.






Descent to despair can reach
darkest of worlds
but as shadow's mood leaves
a new urge unfurls.
Awakes stirrings of Self, tied
to anticipation,
beckons to sense held inside
pain of failures
and as mind clears for action
comes conversion.
Despair enters when tackled 
lasting reversal.

    A fine poem for a rainy day, or for that matter any day of the week....

    Tho not a victim myself in the strictest sense, my adult life has been spent trying to help others less fortunate and certainly, those who experience the oft seriously debilitating effects of depression and the major affective disorders.... I so hope this does the trick.....

      Ditto here Nev - - - my life working with the depressive taught me much empathy. My thanks dear friend for your continued visits and comments.

      Such a meaningful write Fay. In conversation help is always there to help others.

        I am so pleased you found Stirrings meaningful Andy- - - despair takes its victims to darkest of places and I hoped this little verse would give a way through to sufferers. Thank you my friend for your kind in-put.
