Sadness Is A Friend Of Mine

I Will Not Allow Depression To Define Me


I once sat with sadness,
ate at his table, drank his tea,
and partied with his friends.

Through it all,
I lived with suffering
as I prayed on my knees for

No one should have to live through

I made friends with sadness,
so my suffering had to leave.

I learned how to cope,
I learned depression will not be
what defines me.

Sadness is a friend of mine.

I am not nutty, I ‘m allergic to nuts.

I am batty. Duh!
