Depression – This stretch of road is all behind me… la deuxième partie

March 22, 2012

I wrote “This Stretch of Road Is All Behind Me” because I often find people in places where they never want to be.  I believe there is a stretch of road less traveled for those of you who live with misery, including depression.  There are answers.

That road can be behind you.  Depression is a horrible affliction, mostly misunderstood and largely ignored. 

We need to do more not to ignore. 

If you want to experience, first hand, what it is like living with depression, follow this link –>  This stretch of road is all behind you now…

This stretch of road is all behind me.

No more rolling down that road called misery.
I’m no saint. No savior wannabe.
I’m not here to take a fall.
I’m just here passing through, that’s all.
Cause that road I was headed down,
Placed a hurt on me… a hurt on me.
People bent, people broken.
People’s names left unspoken.
I’m not headed down that road.
No. No. No more.
So I’m taken a turn for right or wrong.
This stretch in the road is all behind me.
My mind, my bed is already made.
There’s no more yesterday’s in my sites.
No more yesterday’s hanging over me. Over me.
All I see is ahead of me. Ahead of me…
People bent, people broken.
People’s names left unspoken.
I’m not headed down that road.
No. No. No more.
There’s no going back!
So don’t go there.
