The Storms in My Mind

Clouded sky

I  have to get rid

of the storms in my mind

It has to be today

As the sun shines

to remind me

that  better days will be


I have to get rid of the storms in my mind

the violent winds of yesteryear

beat against the memories

I try to keep safe


I have to get rid of the storms in my mind

the winds scatter hopelessly

to cleanse the thoughts that torment us

the most

but I am still their host


I have to get rid of the storms in my mind

and it has to be today

when the rainbow zipped through the sky

(Oh my!)

to remind me

love cures all.


I have to get rid of the storms in my mind

It has to be today

It has to be today


I want to dedicate this poem to the many young people who suffer from depression. I met someone recently who impressed me so much but the storms in her mind are too strong.  Depression is very present in our nation. Learn to recognize the signs.



    1. Thank you. Each of us has a storm to deal with every so often. What saddens me is that so many cannot cope and sometimes suffer silently and hopelessly with depression. Thanks again.
