This week for my “Poem of the Week” segment, I’ve got for you just one more Shakespearean sonnet that hopefully illustrates what happens when the average individual dwells too hardly on the all the negative events that have taken place in his or her past. Without further ado, then, here’s Depression Buzz. Please enjoy!
August 26, 2013
So many thing I should have done and said
When I was young so many years ago…
When did they not pop into my dense head
When I oh so needed them to do so?
So often I had to learn the hard way
At so many things that it just plain hurt.
Even things I’d long loved would wreck my day,
All because I was that clueless a squirt.
Those days may be done in reality,
But in my mind they play time and again,
And I still envision just where I’d be,
Had I had my wits about me back then.
Was I truly the brat I think I was,
Or is this only a depression buzz?
Well, that should do it for this week, people. as usual, thank you all for stopping by my blog, and hopefully this week’s poem has given you some insight into what one’s pessimism can do to one’s outlook on life and overall mental wellbeing. That being said, all I have left to say is please stop by my author pages at Smashwords.com, Amazon.com, and Amazon.co.uk to see my current list of publications and, as always, happy reading!
