Freedom Speech

One day,the curtains will fall

and I’ll be free to fly away.

I would never look back.

The tide will turn,the dogs will bark.The will to live would be made whole again.

The brown leaves will turn green,
The waters will become clean.

The day will come when I’ll smile again.
The pain will go away.

Things will fall into place.

My broken heart would be mended,
My independence,like atmosphere,

Surrounding me.

I will be free.

Then,and only then.
I will be happy,
I will be positive again,
The nothingness would be gone,
Darkness would be alone,

I would be free.

Written earlier this year,this poem shows the emptiness and hopelessness of the average victim of depression…It shows how the person tries to reassure himself of the freedom to come.
