Feed Not This Fear

Feed Not This Fear
Feed Not This Fear…the dim light of depression

Feed not this fear
that pervades my nights,
those doubts that plague
the dreams that might,
drive this life to lands unseen,
in sun’s embrace of gifts redeemed,
to restore my hopes and better know
what living gleans and in soul may sew,
to find purpose and overcome.

Instead the dim light of depression,
marks days with a tainted quill,
lowering expectations,
and finding place in lessor moods, still,
and fight I must to emerge to light,
the shadows cold and heartless,
to seek the beauty that defines my mind,
my soul, my core, my art,
expression my all, my saviour.

This fear is a meaningless ploy,
no base of reality it holds,
just the feelings of torment that batters mind,
inhibits heart and soul,
yet I fight for every positive breath,
every sagacious knowledge gleaned,
to know the tricks that minds can play,
and uphold my self-esteem,
so I may fly in open skies.

Struggle is but the blood of change,
the betterment of a soul’s aspiration,
and never shall I relent,
for I would then suffer my own condemnation,
rather, push through my imposing bounds,
in search of beauty and purity,
and know that pain makes me who I am,
draws on my inner strength, without ambiguity,
to guide this, my passage.

    Stay steadfast “in search of beauty and purity”. Yes, pain and how we deal with it makes us who we are. Great piece, Tony.
