“Depression on my left, Loneliness on my right. They don’t need to show me their badges. I know these guys very well.”
― Elizabeth Gilbert
Needless to say, I have known them well enough. They have been my very good friends, they had my back a few years ago. But these days, they do visit me every now and then.
Hey Mr. Depression,
Where art thou?
I have been looking for you!
You held my hand a few years back,
Helping me to crack!
But you just left me ,
When I was on the brink of losing me.
Well I had Hope to support me
For you never returned for me.
And I just saw you the other day,
Waiting for me to reach out to you!
But let me tell you,
I am not ready for it you know.
Hey Ms. Loneliness,
I am bothered by your presence,
But you make me look into my inner presence.
I am glad, I have you by my side
When all things defy.
You have taught me to love myself
And I am grateful to you for finding myself.
Without you I would be lost in the crowd,
Allowing them to enshroud.
