Meloncholia,[A Guest Poet]



My mother passed on, nearly two years ago,
She had a complex, personality,
She received a darkened, perception,
That she learned at her mother’s, knee, 

Now I ponder, exactly how much ,

of her nature resides, in me,

How far do our genes, determine,

our own, personalities,


Grandmother was one of those ladies,

who loved, the wrong kind of man,

Who wandered the roads,in the dark of night,

while holding her children’s, hands,


Mom grew up, thinking this normal,

just, the way it’s suppose to be,

So she gravitated,towards men,

with a pension for cruelty,


  I noticed this, as a young girl,

and quickly, made up my mind,

That dark path, was not of my choosing,

I would, marry a different kind,


I thought, I had found the answer,

I would avoid, mom’s melancholy,

But I’ve found, my careful deliberations,

did not leave me, depression free,


So an off and on, journey in darkness,

has troubled me, regularly ,

And this poem, is really a prayer,

that some one, light a candle for me.

 This is a prayer request,for many who are passing, [or camping]   in a dark place,at this time. Please pray and bind the spirit of depression.Prayer works and at times those who pray,battle these demons of darkness,so much so,that they must have the prayers of others,to break through..Jesus said ‘what ever we bind in earth,will be bound in heaven’. It is not a sign of weakness to need the assistance of others.Jesus made such a request in the garden. Some thing else Jesus said,’ The world will know you love Me,by your love one for another.’

   p.s. I want to add,’ just as faith without works is dead ‘,so is ‘prayer ,without action’s’.So if you know some one is battling depression ,[we all can,at times] reach out with a call or visit . Take the risk ,of a closed door,and keep trying.You may save a life . Literally!!!                                                              Cheryl

    One of the greatest evangelists of all time, Charles Finney suffered deep depression most of his life. And yet, he was a mighty man of God.
