I wrote this poem one night, not too long ago …
Yes, to those who know me (or think they do) I am the happy-go-lucky red head – or, as I say it, “the eternal optimist”. So it may come as a surprise to know that I have before, and do still now, deal with depression. I think we all do at one point or another … or in one form or another.
For me, it used to be from years of emotional and verbal abuse that left me feeling worthless. It took a long time for me to overcome that – although there are times I am not so sure that I really have overcome it. Now, it is from constant pain and sickness wearing on my psyche. I try very hard to (as a friend stated) “fake it ’til I make it” and most of the time that is enough to keep me on the brighter side of life. But there are plenty of times that I feel incredibly alone.
I thought it was important to share this poem. Not only is it close to very my heart but I also know many people feel this way …
Oprah Winfrey said, “all we want in the world is to be seen, heard and acknowledged” and there are many times were we all feel incredibly insignificant.
