The transformation in harmony
Depression is not incurable. The soul-stirring note of a person coming out of depression.
Tears welled in my eyes.
I didn’t hide my emotions.
Whenever I heard disturbing things
I just couldn’t remain at peace.
Depression was something new
People couldn’t gauge it right
I was struggling to come out of my despair
And deep down in my heart there was constant pain
Then slowly I gathered the courage
To challenge this condition.
With hope as the only weapon
However weak I was.
When I was good and only good,
Nothing will beat my happiness
I had firm belief in this
And journeyed with determination
I didn’t hate depression but empathized with it
It’s not a hard taskmaster harrowing me with miseries
My gentle heart knew this well and experience the pain
And utterly believed in the goodness of life.
When people empathized with me I didn’t avoid them
I knew their love’s warmth is greater than the depression itself.
I knew depression would not stay long
Because I had lived with my tenacity for years that won over my depression period.
I had undergone the depths of depression
But it didn’t make me a pessimist
Nothing changed my love for life
That is as fresh as dew always
That time when everything seemed to be lost
I dared to open about my depression
The right ones stayed and the others left
Which gave me hope for a better life.
What dawned on me is something significant
And here I am to share with you
I believed in the goodness of life and people
And now progressing in my life with steadiness
Friends, when life can bring you lot of happiness through good people and good spirit
What will it give when you place your trust on Supreme?
Good people and good spirit haven’t swallowed my pride
And so will my trust on the Supreme be.
Have I seen the light at the end of the tunnel after a traumatic phase?
Yes indeed as I have started to celebrate my presence.
I have survived several hurdles and have become wiser
Nothing can dim my light that shines from within.
Life did throw stones at me I agree
But how I emerged out of it is heartening.
Depression didn’t kill me but only healed me
I have let “her” go with peace of mind.
