A Very Thin Line

Poem By Jeffrey Philip Clegg

When I realized I was no longer down
I swore I'd stay away
From the demon called depression
The one that holds such sway

Now that I'm back
In a deep black hole
The odyssey seems stranger

The whole time
On the edge of a cliff
There I was
In danger

Swaying as we do from left alone to right on top.I Hope all good things for you. Love Duncan
I like the honesty of this one...The whole depression thing is a mystery...kinda one those things where you think your ok and your not, and not ok when you are...sort of a Clegg World situation...
A very insightful poem about depression! Thanks!
