No way out ,I'm trapped
Can breathe can move I'm under attack
Dark, lonely don't nobody love me
Or atleast that's what I thought
I was a prisoner
Crying save me from me
I know what it's like to be your own worst enemy
Thoughts so dark I thought it was the end of me.
Then I had an epiphany
it only took one thought
To take me from isolation to my emancipation
The power of the mind
I learned that if i Change my mind i can change my life
so i got my mind out of bondage and took all my baggage and throw it in the garbage.
I no longer let depression be used as a weapon to keep me from progression
I put Christ first in my life and he made my burdens light
Now the load is not so hard to bear because I know he's always there
It's was just a thought of him that gave me perfect peace and made those bad thoughts cease now I can say I'm released .



This is a poem inspired by Facebook. I was reading through my newsfeed and a lot of my peers were writing about how they felt depressed. I could relate so I decided to write a poem to encourage them.
