Depression by Amanda Hoppes


Someday you may find me

Hiding away from the rain

The loud crashing of thunder

Reminds me of the horrendous pain


The bright flashes of lightning

Take me back to the days

When I sat in that room

And through the blackened window

 I could barely see the sun’s rays


I pray someday these vivid memories will fade

And the rain will then wash away the past, spreading a smile across my face

I will be cleansed of all the unwelcomed, undeserving sins

And I will never have to relive those

horrible moments again

About the Author

Writing has been my passion since the age of 7… my inspiration to keep going with my writing has always come from my mother. Even though she passed away when I was 18, it is now driven by her memory.

 My name is Amanda Hoppes born and raised in Waterloo, Iowa. My writing is my every step, every move, every breath I take; It’s my vibrant smile, my saddest frown, my every single mistake; It’s my heart on fire, my soul so deep, my mind always free; It’s my life line, my past, present and future, my writing is ME.
