Subject: To Those Under The Weather

Hey, I'm 18, just started writing poetry - this is my best so far. Tell me what you think ok... Thank you!

To Those Below the Weather

Lest we wallow in depression
While our minds, our thoughts oppress,
Cowered down by this procession
Letting misery progress
‘Til this harrowing transgression
Traps us in one sordid mess…
Set aside this bleak obsession;
Free your mind of this duress.

Life is full of complication,
Problems may perpetuate,
Pests devise an infiltration,
When ignored will seal our fate.
Ask yourself the implication –
May we not alleviate
That which plans our decimation
As we calmly contemplate?

Therein lays the fine division
‘Tween our misery and bliss,
Trials so impair our vision
That our joys we tend to miss,
We’re so caught up in decision
That our options lay remiss
While our perils feign derision,
Trifles that we ought dismiss.

Angst is naught but small distraction
Pleading for us to react,
Pain is only but a fraction;
Don’t let sorrow’s claim protract.
Don’t give grief the satisfaction
By conceding to false fact.
We can now take faithful action –
Here’s the course we shall enact:

To this evil raise objection;
Hope with you may reconnect.
Let us sit in still reflection
So that we may recollect;
Let us find in introspection
Something worthy to protect –
Virtue in our thoughts collection,
All things right and quite correct.

So that we may gain direction
I have something to suggest –
Though we’ll never find perfection
Happiness shall be our quest.
Be content with imperfection
And the world will yield its best;
Cherish life – dismiss rejection;
Love your life – forget the rest.
