Poem: Depression  2021

Written by empressjournee

Like a sinking sand, trying to fight through:


Like a lifeless man, without hope, and friends are few:


Like there’s no music, songs, sweet companion—to dance,

With you:


Like a beaming smile, turn to a frown, and tearful blues:


Like a dark cloud, covering, the sun, and the moon:

Depression, be gone!

I command joy, to hurry, and let the freshness,

Of love, shine on, through!

About the author


This bio will be short. I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College. Mother of three and grandmother. I love to read and write poetry.

To those who have been a great support in reading my website and those who just came across this poetry this will be the ending of my poetic journey for now. I hope there will be a new chapter in my life that will be a success and inspired people to be far better in their thoughts, words and deeds. I am working on myself and it’s been hard.... yet I am getting there. When I began my poetry, I felt so deeply inspired. Now when I write I just write (feeling burned out of all that has occurred and is occurring) and I am feeling as if my poetry isn’t moving in the manner that I feel it should because I have not place myself in a position to be active reading my poetry at live venues for my own personal reason. I wanted to thank those who took the time to read my poetry especially my love ones. Thank you for being on the journey with me. Peace and blessings.
