The Dark Side

I see you there, through that unwitting air.

Dark as can be, its more shaded I see.

Waves of despair, I wish I could see through mid-air.

Depression, on my mind, though I’m not feeling fine.

There’s a horizon in sight, though I feel I can fight.

These emotions are so grand, my head, there feels like a tight band.

The sadness is thickening, i drop my head for this impending melancholy to over take me.

An emotion I’m familiar with, a feeling I’m uncomfortable with, a time that is set for me.

My feet hit the floor, my bed is making me sore, sore from laying so long, there’s got to be a better song!

Play Misty for me, I hear on the radio. My song brings such comfort to me.

My boundaries are excluded. I haven’t felt this convoluted. My life seems out of control, I’m spinning in this bowl.

Surrounded by darkness, sadness, despair, will it pass with the next coming up for air?

Your beauty precedes the likeness of me. My soul searches but I can’t see.

Oh, in the far distance, through the mist, it’s a figure that is me.

Hello self, I’m glad to see, my depression, is finally passed me!

Think Positive

Dr. Stephen Covey

Every human has four endowments- self-awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom... The power to choose, to respond, to change.

Demi Lovato

No matter what you're going through, there's a light at the end of the tunnel and it may seem hard to get to it but you can do it and just keep working towards it and you'll find the positive side of things.

Elbert Hubbard

Positive anything is better than negative nothing.

Helen Keller

Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow.

Find a place inside where there's joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.

Leah LaBelle

Work hard for what you want because it won't come to you without a fight. You have to be strong and courageous and know that you can do anything you put your mind to. If somebody puts you down or criticizes you, just keep on believing in yourself and turn it into something positive.

Norman Vincent Peale

Change your thoughts and you change your world.

Maya Angelou

I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it.

Oscar Wilde

Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.

Maria Robinson

Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.
