Depression Poetry

All the Way Towards Another Tomorrow by Yuan Changming

Since              yester twilight
Along             the borderline of tonight
With               fits of thirst & hunger
Among           storms of pain
Between        interludes of frenzies or insomnia
Near               despair & desperation

Amidst             the nightmare
At                      the depth of darkness
Through          one tiny antlike moment
After                 another…
Until                 awakening
To                     the first ray of dawn
