Down in the dumps




Throat full of lumps


Don’t know what to do

Where to go from here



Filled with despair


Need a bit of cheering up

Because I’m so weary

Feeling a bit under the weather

It’s all so dreary


Down, depressed, distressed, drained

These digging emotions, drive me insane


Need some sunshine

To shine through the rain

Need to get away

By boat, plane or train


Down, depressed, totally blue

Dangerously doubtful and stressed out too


So here’s the thing

I want this poem to have a happy end

So a negative message to you I won’t send


What can I say; it’s just a momentary lapse

But for you let me fill in the gaps


Things are really never as bad as they seem

Out of the darkness a flicker of light gleam


In the dark night, there are the moon, stars, and fireflies

So forget what you’re hearing

The Devil’s lies


He is a liar, you know

There is a bright light at the end of this trail

So keep moving forward

You will prevail
