Look Up

I thought I really decided
what I had to do to bring
my lifelong malaise to

an end

but now I am not so sure

that’s okay because I will
continue living my life in
the shadow of dysthymia

that no one but me knows
is always there no matter
what I do or where I go

so I will continue to
know joy pain and sorrow
laughter and tears all

at the same level where
dysthymia and I live on a
line that runs just below

and parallel to normal
whatever that is

if you are like me don’t
forget this secret

I can look up and I
know God who lives
above the lines looking

back at me and in God’s
eyes I am loved and
special no matter what

look up
