Thou, unwelcome Companion,
My haunt from time untold,
Formally your name is Depression,
Known to me as Dark-and-Cold.
Your visits are sans invitation.
You bind my spirit in chains.
Your ceaseless proclamation:
“This horrid existence can’t change.”
You’ll visit me oft in the future,
To this, I woefully concede.
Your attempts to have me surrender,
Will never, NO NEVER, succeed.
You cannot deny me my Peace.
I cling to a Hope from above.
I have lasting Victory in this:
“Through Christ, God poured out His love.”
So shadow me Vile Offender.
Follow the rest of my life.
To only One I surrender.
His Name is Jesus, the Christ!
