I have been feeling that way lately since a friend took her life on June 27th of this year. I miss her greatly and wonder if I will end up losing to my depression like she had. Thank you for sharing this.
Thank you for the comments D.S. Sorry for your loss and hope that you are winning your battle with depression! I've had recurring bouts over the years. At the moment I am doing well and as long as life doesn't throw another curve ball I can't handle the future looks bright.
I am so glad I found this poem on Tea's DA page. You expressed so well the feelings that I have in this period of my life. So many bad choices, so many mistakes along the way make me wonder where my life went wrong. I feel like I squandered so many days that I could have used to do something more productive. When you're very young you think you have all the time in the world until one day you realize that you don't have endless days to make things better. I'm sorry for writing so long because you don't know me at all but this poem just touched me so much ! If you weren't totally depressed, you will be after reading this and I'm truly sorry for that.
Hello Cecilia Sorry for the late reply... I haven't had internet service for a long time, but I'm back now. Thank you very much for your comments, they're most appreciated and I am sure a lot of people can relate to the feelings I tried to express in this song/poem. Hope your situation has improved and that you are in a better frame of mind than I was at that time.
That is quite alright!! I had to go back and read my comments. I think at times I am in a better frame of mind than when I wrote my comments. But I still have those feelings now and then which I imagine a lot of others do too.Thanks for responding!!!
Well .. David, I really like this image .. it is as melancholic as the words that go along with it .. I hope that your art (writing, painting or whatever else) , gives you relief & that you are able to cast any kind of emotional baggage on these artworks. I have great respect for your forthrightness.
Thank you Sophie Both writing and painting serve as emotional outlets which to some extent brings relief. Expression of emotions through whatever means is certainly healthier than suppression. Emotional baggage! hmmmm... The way I like to think of it is that people who have not learned from their experiences turn them into baggage which they drag from one unscheduled stop to the next, while those who have turn them into a road map to guide them on their journey. Then there's always the oddball who has his road map locked in his baggage and refuses to leave the hotel.
Really? I still have 176 deviations to check out from your old gallery I saw thumbs only they are amazing ^_^
I'm not sure but i think you can submit it to Literature > Poetry > Emotional > Songs & Lyrics or somewhere other sub-category, then use "Upload file" button to add the picture and "Add text" button to add the text. Or you might submit it to Visual Poetry sub-category (:
Beautiful dear You must know that I m also singing ur song in this sh.. life But all isnt wrong, we must stay positive when we think about our parents. Arent we more lucky than them. I guess I m) You are also lucky cos there is a very big for u ) Have a wonderful sunday my dear
Thank you dear! with hopes that we both will sing happier songs tomorrow.
In many ways our lives are better than that of our parents but then the world is so different now and many of the technological advances which held promise for a better life have actually created more problems. Problems which our parents never faced. It's sad when you realize you have the ability to reach out and speak with people all over the world yet you still feel alienated.
My fault always to feel so close to myself even i dont know very well in my real life dear. it hurts me many times but ı couldnt change my character. The life never treated me good but others says( even ı lost my God) God loves his simple slaves.is it true? My life very simple but he didnt love me.But I still have hopes since end of my life and ı m glad to live in this period) Life is still nice dear David even with its troubles
Thank you so much Sandy I think you're right and for me it's mostly at those times that I have the need to write. I actually have a complete tune in my head but I'm no musician so I doubt it will ever escape.
