As I wake, I slowly realise,
That I face another day with darkened eyes,
As it hits me I have to refrain,
From the thoughts wishing me dead again!

Pure isolation, I dream of escape,
My hopes and ambitions I’ve had to forsake,
Panic, despair, my hand grips the knife,
I pray for the strength to end this sad life!!

Comes like the darkest night,
No glimmer of hope, no sign of light.

I feel the torment build deep inside,
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide,
It has to happen now, I need a release,
I hope suicide will finally bring me peace!


As I look back with love in my heart,
My Chains are gone, i have a new start,
The Lord is my refuge, my strength, my home,
The darkness has gone, I’m no longer alone!

📖 Verse of Hope

John 14:1-4

“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going.”

One Response to “Depression”

  1. I also have struggles with depression in my life. My causes were domestic violence in the past and a son that abuses drugs and choose to do that and live on the street.. I am so glad that the Lord saw you through this time……..and continues to see you through! What would we do without our Jesus?

Any thoughts? I'd love to hear from you!
