The winds of success and happiness blow
on your horizon.
Keep your head up and wear your crown
with pride because you are a star and
the world is your stage to shine.
Wipe that sad make-up off your face
and wear a smile because you’re unique,
blessed and beautiful.
Walk with pride, soaring high like the
African fish eagle.
Appreciate the gift of life and thank
God for your health and all that you have.
Depression has thousands in its pathetic
army walking around with a fake smile
plastered on their faces and has led
many souls into a mass grave.
Pitiful souls leveraging on their
weaknesses and obsessed about
The reason for feelings of despair and
lowlessness, sadness and self esteem
issues, constant worry and loneliness.
Victims magnified by a clouded mind,
projecting things and dwelling on negativity.
So, dear depressed,
Let go of your pain and fight depression.
Do not let courage go into a vacuum.
Dwell not on your challenges or past
negative experiences but focus on your
strengths and rebuilding your future.
You’re so much stronger than you think.
Look not on your short comings but caress
your Opportunities with zeal.
Shine brighter than Sirius in the earth’s
Do not succumb to feelings of unhappiness,
regret, and your mistakes but align with
Happiness, Hope, Love and a Faith that
Do not let the world suck you in with
Negativity or let hatred draw scars on
You’re wonderfully created, and
When the wave of depression submerges
and you’re drowning, remember that you
know how to swim but demons do not.
Take control of your life, depressed soul.
God has a plan for you.
Seek God and surrender your problems
The world needs more of your awesomeness
even if you do not feel it or realize it.
Shine like the sun, depressed…wipe that frown
off your face and rise above any challenges.
Wrote this in relation to a poem i wrote last year about depression. I have come across many people who are battling depression – but are afraid to admit that they are depressed because society has somehow made them feel that it’s a taboo to admit that they are suffering from this illness.
So, i wrote this piece to inspire all dealing with depression – while also offering strength and hope.
Hope that this piece strengthens someone.
