Why When The Sun Shines?

Updated: Dec 15, 2020

Foreword: It's a beautiful warm mid September day. The sun is shining and the sky an unspoilt gorgeous blue. I however feel like it's a grey winters day. To be honest, I feel hopeless. I know it will pass. Depression does. Despite my faith, my depression tells my mind that God doesn't care, he doesn't listen and I'd be better off gone. It tells me God doesn't care about my anxieties over my health, nor does he care I feel I no longer have a useful purpose. Odd isn't it that I personally feel I only have a useful purpose if I'm employed and being paid?

I did what I usually do nowadays..write about it!

Why when the sun shines

And the sky is deepest blue

Do I sit alone in my thoughts

And feel so far from you?

Why when the sun shines

And I should be feeling great

When only for myself

I feel a sense of hate?

Why when the sun shines

And the breeze it gently blows

The birds they sing so hopefully

But for me they sound so hollow?

Why when the sun shines

Is it not my time to smile?

I don't know where I go from here

To escape this tiresome trial..

Why when the sun shines

Do I question if you hear me?

Or am I wasting my time

Searching, constantly peering?

Why when the sun shines

Is positivity in the dark?

Negativity hunting it down

Like a blood thirsty killer shark.

Why when the sun shines?

I really need to know

Am I back in that desolate place

Where I never want to go?

Why when the sun shines

Is my lightness in the shade?

I have to trust and pray to you

That soon the shade will fade.
