The Cloud

The Cloud, digital painting by me,
Mary Stebbins Taitt

Acting as if

When depression has me reeling
with dark clouds and darker feelings
when I weep and wail and cry
and shout and wonder why
I've lost all traces of hope
(I feel like such a dope!)
I hurry to sing the blues
and read some happy news
I dance a little jig
and wear a silly wig
and laugh and laugh so loud
I'd make hyenas proud
I make gifts for all my friends
and walk in nature's glens
until the sun shines once again
and I know I'm on the mend.
