When your life has fallen to pieces
And you don’t know where to turn
When you seem to have lost the momentum
And can’t tell where to go
When you feel all alone among strangers
And cannot find a friend
You’re like an engine
That needs an overhaul
A bike locked up by its wheel
A bus that’s devoid of passengers
Don’t give up, in time you can heal.
But reject thoughts that turn you inwards
Care for others before yourself
Move towards the helpless and hapless
Help them find new channels to cope
And soon you’ll be aware and realise
Your own vehicle’s about to restart!
There are a lot of people who suffer from clinical depression and believe me I do not dismiss this illness – it is real. But for most people, short term set-back strikes us all at certain times of our lives and we can feel very depressed. For this, I believe time will heal. However I also believe there is a point when dwelling on our own problems becomes a heavy burden and that by looking beyond ourselves we can make a difference to others and that by helping them we promote and speed up our own healing too, so we can restart our own living.
