Weekly #Tanka #Poetry Prompt Challenge #4 Passion & Cheer


Depression by Teresa Smeigh October 2016

I’ve lost my passion.

Where is my life full of cheer?

Why must I be sad?

Depression lowers spirit.

Go away depression.

About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.

    Oh yes, it will go away in time. It is so hard when it is happening, but then the light comes back and you can move forward once again. I love the expression in your tanka. It said it all.
