Coming out of a long depression

 

Im coming out of my sputa.

Like a butterfly blossoming, emerging from its cocoon pupa.

 

Coming out and walking into the light,

and this time I know my time is right.

 

Coming out of a long lost depressions,

for I now can see the clouds a-lifting,

 

and Im looking around and seeing things in a different way.

Finally I can say; I can see hopes ray.

 

And hope is what Im longing for,

hope is precisely what Ive been missing,

 

and so all things sad are melting away,

melting away, melting away.

 

Yes, its finally all ending,

and Im coming out of a long lost depression.
