Very good and encouraging! Enjoy!!
The prompt over at dVerse Poets Pub today is to think of our words as seeds and to consider what we want to grow from what we write. I decided to share a revised version of a poem I wrote almost three years ago. I recently submitted the original version to a poetry contest, and although I did not make it into the final round I received some great feedback, so I decided to incorporate that feedback into this version.
What I hope will grow from these seeds are encouragement, hope, and faith for at least one person who is struggling today with the darkness of depression.
Darkness to Light—Take Two
Darkness surrounded me
Darkness invaded my mind
Darkness enveloped my barren soul
In the darkness
The evil one whispered
Thoughts that seemed my own
They’d be blessed without me
It would be better if I was dead
