Trying peace to find
No grace to be found
Fear filled mind
Urging to hide
Don’t hope for something kind
Rejecting bright sunshine
Closing heart to hopes deep mine
Abuse programmed mind
Cued to put me down
All affirmations hollow find
Echoing soul’s cry
Loving kindness unfulfilled prophecy
Bleak depressed kind© REDCAT
Millions lonely just wanting to be found
Today meditation couldn’t ease my mind
In September last year, meaning the first month back blogging, I wrote a piece called Bad day, about the days that PTSD and my clinical depression puts me so low I would like to just go hide.
(Or die depending on how bad it gets.)
Today was such a day when the fact there’s no one to reach out to, felt like the worst thing ever, all I wanted was to hide away and cry.
Instead I did my meditation, tried to go about my day as normal and dragged myself to practice (since we’re advised physical distance rather then lockdown). It didn’t really help, but tomorrow I’ll know I did most of what I aimed today. And hopefully that will give me something.
From one depressed soul to all others
All my love and take care of yourself!
