depression hurts

depression hurts it stings
it does not just "go away"
although its wounds cannot
be seen.
it is with some of us
each day.
it can not be shaken off
because someone says
"you can"
it is not a thing of shame.
it is not what any of us
so those who have not
experienced this deepest,
harsh abyss.
to those who have,
some understanding
we really
for this.

thank you

About Me

My photo
i am older than dirt and proud of it!!!! i have managed to incorporate my eternal 60's nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga, the beach, waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. i have added sketching, watercolor painting, and photography to my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance. P.S. all painting, poems and photographs are my originals karen Lyons kalmenson
