Daily Prompt – Flourish



I have tried to ignore it, to push those thoughts away
I have tried to starve it off its food to make it go away

From a little plant it became a garden that somehow became a forest with each day claiming a bit of me…
I allowed the depression to flourish until it became all that surrounds me closely, prohibiting me from seeing the whole picture that is outside of this huge and wild forest…
