PS: Dedicated to every one who beat the blues of Depression. It is for them and the family that fights this unfathomable abyss and comes out victorious.
I know how much of me it takes
To open my eyes at day break
On the days when everything looks bleak.
The mists so deep and dark
That nothing can penetrate them.
The skies which look blue to others
Look menacing to me.
How do I explain them?
The clouds in the mind
The incessant chatter in the mind
The downward avalanche
That sometimes seems to be my life.
How do I come to terms with it?
To lift myself up from this morass
Wake up and take faltering steps
Only I know what it takes.
I might be miles behind my peers
But I am miles ahead of where I had been.
I do not know who to blame for my state
My Fate, my Destiny or my God.
I sure know who to thank for getting out
Myself, My God and My Family.
