When Sadness is Your Way of Life

Personal (Hope)

It takes hold,

wraps itself

around your neck.


It gets tighter,

suffocating the life 

out of you.


You let depression

consume you

from the inside out.


The tears become

your constant companion,

pain- your friend.


Every morning

begins as a repeat 

of the day before.



you must make a choice:

let it win or run from it.


I chose to run away

to a place where 

I could be happy again.
