Mending( Published at The Writers Club)

Deep pain dissolve as tears are shed,
holding them in, creates pure dread,
lingered feelings, grasp to then spread,
depression comes to kill hopes dead.

Anxious thoughts hit, no where to hide,
feel such a hallow pain inside,
so overwhelming, all peace dies,
so hard to swallow, lips chap dry.

Encaged body, feels so alone,
motive is lost, feet turn to stone,
social dependence live in phones,
everyone cares, love goes unknown.

Shed salty tears, sweet ones appear,
cries become laughs, bright essence nears,
kiss on the face dissolves all fears,
“Stay in the present”, sounds so clear.

“One day at a time” ships yesterday,
each passing step brings better ways,
tomorrow is here, bliss starts today,
joy is a choice, without delays.

Confidence comes to peel off masks,
heals emotions, eases all tasks.
Self assurance will rarely ask,
instead feels calm enough to bask.

– Grace Y. Estevez – Reddy

    This is valuable mantra. Beautiful, Grace.

  4. This line…”depression comes to kill hopes dead”…too true for too many! I love how you turned it around, especially this stanza “β€œOne day at a time” ships yesterday, each passing step brings better ways, tomorrow is here, bliss starts today, joy is a choice, without delays.” πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’• Powerful message! πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•
