Again I Confront Depression: Poetry Response
I love finding other poets to respond to in poetry. Take a look atÂ Radhika Shah’sÂ poem,Â “Depression calls again” as posted onÂ Jalvis Quotes.
Bed made, doubt canâ€™t stop me.
Renumbered days feel possible.
Attention, I will not quit!
Not your call, Not your call.
Bed dressed, habit of hope.
Time waits quietly,
already prepared for the
wrong pressed against determination.
Is there a way through? Is there a way through?
Attention all obstacles
opposite to thought, you are
mere specks of trouble
darkening my life.
Is it possible?
Smile, remember days overcome.
Tried and tested. Tried and tested.
Uncomfortable stretching of muscles untrained.
Help me with your presence, so that I may
lie in peace, lie in peace.
