The Journey

Broken down and tired, carrying my pain and sorrow from a life that I acquired

Caught between a rock, hell and nowhere, trying to rest in a place I desire

Prayin while looking for answers, to who and what it seems I’ve haven’t a clue

In search of those I once loved who are now gone, scattered, and are just a few


The journey has been a long one that seem to have no end

A path that was so very lonely, with countless twist and turns, with not one friend

Pleading for the Lord to be by my side and help guide me, by the stars up above

While I look to the Heavens and beg for his mercy and even more, for his love


It is said that you will never be given more than you can handle

But this journey has left me tattered and torn, with my soul in shambles

But now I see a light off in the distance, that makes my spirit a bit less weary

For at this moment, I take comfort in knowing my journey is almost through


It’s as if I could feel his presence, from where I now stand

While feeling the love of this place, that we all call home

It’s a peace, calm and beauty that now holds me so very close

Like a child being held in the arms of the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost


For at last I am reaching out over the fields of Jordan

I feel the winds of Heaven touch my skin as it rolls on by

I hear a choir of the Lord’s angels singing a beautiful hymn

For I am almost home and these tears are of happiness, that I cry

The Depressed Poet comes from many years of suffering from Depression. While in the hospital for this a doctor suggested that I try my hand at poetry and that is where life changed for me. I wrote about things I never really thought of before like God, Jesus, Heaven and so on. I do not consider myself a great or good writer because, I am not. What I am is a man, who stumbles through his words, so he can make it through his days. I also host a podcast called, The Coffee and Prayer Series.
