275. One of the Threads

I wrote this poem in 2009 when I was lost in a fog of depression and wallowing in the self-centeredness of my own misery.

You are all-powerful,
and I am not.

You are the Creator,
and I am not.

You are from all eternity,
and I am not.

You are faithful,
and I am not.

You are God,
and I am not.

I adore, worship, and praise You,
for my life here on earth and for all eternity.

As my pen came off the paper, I felt the fog of depression lifting a bit as I came out of myself and into the presence of God. It was one more thread of the fabric that eventually pulled me out of major depression.

About Patrick Day

In 2010, I escaped from four long years of deep, dark depression. This blog shares lessons I learned from those years as depicted in my autobiography - How I Escaped from Depression - as well as other insights about depression and anxiety that only come from someone who has gone through it. When you have a heart attack, you become an expert in heart attacks. When you have diabetes, you become an expert in that condition. As such, I am an expert in depression, with a four-year experiential degree and graduate studies in how to live a life going forward that keeps the ever-lurking Depression at a healthy distance.
