Internal Quiet




Peaceful and resting                          

Silently enjoying bliss

Till noise interrupts

Remembering Back

Source: Free Digital Photos Photographer Maggie Smith
I cannot cry
I feel nothing inside
Hollow is all that resides
Feelings once there
Now left with despair
Gloom and doom
Is all I see
What will become
Of me
Not sure if I really care
If I am here or there
Not much matters anymore
Go ahead walk out that door
Angry at what you do not see
This life is a living hell for me
Sometimes I invoke
To God to provoke
A glimmer of hope
There must be belief within me
For when I wake I pray to be
Back to the once normality

I have been reading so many articles on depression lately and so many of us have been there. The words above are how I remember being stuck in a funk for weeks upon weeks. It is difficult looking back and remembering how awful it felt, so someone please, say something funny to lighten my mood. Thanks so much for reading.

Should a Would a Could a

Myself with my mother in law Claire
The following poem is something I wrote for one of my dearest friends who just happens to be my Mother In Law. 
We have had a really good relationship since we first met back in 1986, and have been great friends ever since.
Claire is notorious for saying I should have done this or I could have done that. This is what inspired me to write this poem for her.
Should a Would a Could a
Should a Would a Could a is not the place for you.
Think about tomorrow and the things you want to do.
Leave the Should a Would a Could a’s where
They belong and think about the things to come,
Not where you've gone wrong.
Think about the dreams, the things you want to see.
Think about the fun that you shall have with me.
You cannot change the past, just Live for Today.
Yesterday is gone; leave it there, where it belongs.
Think about tomorrow and the things you want to do,
The Should a Would a Could a’s of the past are gone.
