Enough!

Enough!

A Poem by Kay Salisu Titilola

Enough!

Enough of this anxiety,
Enough of this pain.
Enough of this enormity,
Depression, leave my way!

It's time I get rid of my worries,
It's time for me to smile again.
No more season of mourning,
No more living in this cage.

Thank you Li!
Since I'm bipolar, I've spent about half my life being depressed. I spent four years treating it with medications & I have to say, even tho meds help alot, it's still necessary to use mental discipline to kick oneself in the butt regularly. This is that kind of kick. It feels loving & tolerant, but also no-nonsense . . . kinda talking to oneself as a mother would loving discipline child. The most original lines: "enough of this enormity" . . . "no more living in this cage" . . . straightforward & very truthful (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Thank you so much Margie.
Someone has to be free of worries in order to enjoy life.
Why worry! It'll still be there afterwards! Just relax and let the world whiz past!

It doesn't matter how gilded the cage, those wings need to fly.
Nothing can change our perspective more than seeing it from a different view. We close ourselves in when we should be facing the world and taking a break from our cages, real or imagined.
Easier to say than do, but it wouldn't be so worthwhile if it were easy.
Very well captured., pardon the pun. 😀

I think you express what many feel but cannot share or acknowledge. The short, pithy and somewhat 'terse' verse conveys well such tension and anxiety.

Thank you very much for your wonderful review, John.
Well done, Kay. I've been where you have written of, and that self-doubt can be overcome. It isn't easy, but you appear to be well on your way. The only one with the power to make a change is you. One thing, get to know who you are as a person and play on your strong points...get to like yourself.

Well done.

Thank you for your powerful review, Ted.
I'm glad you knew about this.
Kay, as I read your poem, I thought the writer is conveying, perhaps unwittingly, aspirations more than realities. How many times to tell ourselves what you've written, yet we need to say it again and again? I've found the remedy is truly embracing who you are, versus what the world (or family, friends, etc.) want you to be. I think Emerson speaks to this better than most in his essay, Self-Reliance. A poem that forces us to look in the mirror and ask what we truly see. Good work, Kay.

You're welcome. I look forward to reading more.
Depression is debilitating, removing the joy of living, the light and plunging us into a state of darkness. There is a determination in your lines to deal with this and come out the other side. Waiting for that spark, that light at the end of the tunnel can seem like a life time. Keep looking for it Kay. You describe this state well.

This is great! So much power and determination in this poem, this person is really fed up of feeling this way and so they should be, they have the right to be happy. I hope they can keep this up!
