from those who get a little blue

it will pass

             we know


     while it holds us there
           crushed in the dark
     while it sucks away
           all our confidence

     while it allows
           life to overwhelm us

excuse us
       if we don't smile

excuse us
       if we moan and groan
                 and float about like
                           miserable rain clouds

we do know
          how lucky we are
we do know
          we are loved
we do know
          we are not as worthless as we think

but we can't feel it
                     right now

  1. All of us feel weak and tire sometime. I believe we must have concern for other and ourselves. A few kind words can change a person mind if we try. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.


  2. We all feel this way about something sometime. Hopefully not all the time.

    When I am in the blue mood, I want to be allowed time to work through the navy blue and come back at least to a sky blue.

    Like others I really liked your poem. 🙂
