Depression Poems

Depression is a difficult state of mind to deal with, and can often make you not want to be around people and lose interest in every day activities. This in turn leads to a cycle which often results in lower energy, more (or less) sleep, and even a worse appetite. It can be hard to imagine that there are others just like you that are out there, but it is indeed a fact. You don’t have to, and really shouldn’t suffer alone. That being said, when you’re under the mercy of depression, one of the hardest things to do is to take that first step and reach out to others for guidance.

The good news is that you’ve already taken the first step by visiting this website. You have already recognised and admitted that you are going through a hard time and that you need help – give yourself credit for that. You can find all the information and tools you need to beat depression today on this site. If you’re feeling particularly down at this moment, these inspirational poems can help get you back on your feet and give you that extra push you need in order to break free of depression and live the life you really deserve. If these poems put a smile on your face or cause you to think positively for just a moment or two, then that in itself is already a step forward.

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.

Author: William Ernest Henley

“After the Rain”

Whatever your cross, whatever your pain
There will always be sunshine after the rain
Perhaps you may stumble, perhaps even fall
But God’s always ready to answer your call

He knows every heartache, sees every tear
A word from His lips can calm every fear
Your sorrows may linger throughout the night
But suddenly vanish at dawn’s early light

The Savior is waiting somewhere above
To give you His grace and send you His love
Whatever your cross, whatever your pain
God always sends rainbows after the rain

“Don’t Quit”

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road your trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and its turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When they might have won, had they stuck it out.
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the struggler has given up,
When he might have captured the victors cup;
And he learned too late when the night came down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when your hardest hit,
It’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit!

“O Me! O Life!”

Oh me! Oh life! of the questions of these recurring,
Of the endless trains of the faithless, of cities fill’d with the foolish,
Of myself forever reproaching myself, (for who more foolish than I, and who more faithless?)
Of eyes that vainly crave the light, of the objects mean, of the struggle ever renew’d,
Of the poor results of all, of the plodding and sordid crowds I see around me,
Of the empty and useless years of the rest, with the rest me intertwined,
The question, O me! so sad, recurring—What good amid these, O me, O life?

That you are here—that life exists and identity,
That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.

Author: Walt Whitman

“The Rainy Day”

The day is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
The vine still clings to the mouldering wall,
But at every gust the dead leaves fall,
And the day is dark and dreary.My life is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
My thoughts still cling to the mouldering Past,
But the hopes of youth fall thick in the blast,
And the days are dark and dreary.

Be still, sad heart! and cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall,
Some days must be dark and dreary.

Author: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


There is freedom waiting for you,
On the breezes of the sky,
And you ask “What if I fall?”
Oh but my darling,
What if you fly?
