Getting redemption for your tortured soul...

Seeking Redemption

by Bill O'Bier

A sluggish evening breeze stirs
as I struggle to cast off
heavy burdens of today.
Looking in the mirror,
all I see is the past.
My mind and body
are tattooed with sorrow.
I want so desperately
to be free of this anguish
that has imprisoned my heart
I long to grow into all
I have the ability to be.
But for now all I can do
is seek redemption
for my tortured soul.

Writing Prompt
Write a free verse poem. Free verse is a form of poetry that does not necessarily follow to any specific meter patterns, rhyme, or any other pattern. Free verse, despite its freedom, often still has some elements of form. Most free verse does observe a convention of lines and structure. No rhyming patterns.

Redemption - deliverance; rescue.

Depression can be like a spiritual or emotional fog that stubbornly clouds our hope and happiness. It might last for a couple weeks, or for years. It might be brought on by a specific traumatic experience, a broken relationship, or it might be less traceable and difficult to explain. It is debilitating for those that experience it. But there are many effective treatments available that can help you manage symptoms. Talk therapy and medication are used as the first line of treatment for depression. If you are feeling depressed - please seek out support and treatment. Get redemption for your tortured soul.
