Moods (Poem)

One day I want to die,

Another day I’m begging to keep on living,

Depression makes me want to die,

Happiness makes me want to keep on living,

My moods determine if I want to die or keep on living.


So I say “help me see the reasons to love life,”

Give me a reason to stop thinking “I want to die,”

Help me find happiness in everything I encounter in life,

Help me stop finding a way to die,

I want to constantly love life.


I also ask for a way to stop fearing death when happiness appears,

Show me to appreciate life instead,

I don’t want to stop being happy when hardship appears,

I want to cherish the short life instead,

Most of all, comfort me with the words, “your loved ones in heaven will welcome you when death appears.”
