A change for the worse

A Change for the worse

I used to think Everyone was changing around me for the worse
But In the end it was me who changed
I used to like being around people , Loved hanging out with people .
With not a worry in the world
All happyness soon fell
Into the dark holes of depression
sunny days soon turned to rain
The blue skys turn grey
But how could I let it slip out of my reach
If I could smile again
If I could see the sunny skys that I long forgot
I wouldn't take it for granted
I would hold each day with a burning pasion
Now Sit in this old house playing hide n seek with my shadows
I long forgot what sunny skys used to be
I forgot
To hold on
I'm paying the price
being locked away
In a house full of hate
Locked in a room full of depression
Strapped in a chair of saddness ..

"Change has a bad reputation in our society. But it isn't all bad. Not by any means. In fact, change is necessary in life to keep us moving ... to keep us growing ... to keep us interested . ... Imagine life without change. It would be static ... boring ... dull."
- Dr. Dennis O'Grady in Bottom Line - Personal

In this chair I shall sit.
Writing to my hearts content.
Always questioning my answers.
Always answering my questions.
The keeper where lays he?
The keys were within reach.
Now out of sight,
and going out of my mind.
Always searching in shadowed hallways of the demised.

Sorry your words intrigued a spontaneous reaction.
I though I'd share.
I love this poem,
and of course your name!
Mr. Snow Hill.

powerfully poignant and profound!!! please read one of my poems and tell me what you think it is called 'this is YOUR absolution...' this is scarey and good like all soul fodder comes from the depth of experience. if this is your experience as you chose to change perhaps you can chose to change again? exceptional writing... strapped to a chair... I would love to know the situation that inspired this piece! you are making me nosey!!! lol! Cheers SS

Thank you !

I just always felt locked away from the rest of the world by depression . , Just a everyday fight I guess .
