In search of belief

In search of belief short poem

Sore with discontent,

Oblivion beckons,

Fade out or live long-

Perhaps not an option.

Choices are illusions,

Life a big lie,

Return to innocence-

Most desired.

Loath and anguish,

No logic to talk about,

Haze of negativity-

Call it depression.

Yet it is life still,

No pride no prejudice,

Just an unflinching death wish..

Nothing to hang on to-

Or so it seems.

Can all this end please;

Cannot watch the re-runs again,

Cannot see the downward spiral,

Cannot live without belief,

Cannot make room for belief as well.

I draw in my breath and instictively sent hugs, I felt the sheer weight of depression
in this poem. A good poem in my eyes at least makes you feel a strong emotion
which this did for me.
