I suffered post natal depression after the birth of my daughter. This is my climb from it.

I've lived alone a thousand times but, last time was the worst, Sitting here on my own all I think is 'I must be cursed', I emerge from the darkness and look at what's left, Not a word in all the world to explain it but, bereft, Heavy is my heart, soul and the pressure on my chest.

She made me whole but, I just didn't see, Should have been filled with great joy and so much glee, Instead, my mind melted, I became depressed, One massive arsehole, is how it can be dressed, Stuck in the shadows, at my own minds behest.

Must turn this round, must get back to my best, Build a home for my kid, build a beautiful nest, The past it must fade and die like the rest, Forward through life, with fever and zest.

The mornings are better, the smiles less rare, I shook off the cobwebs, she's my only care, Kayah Ann McGinty, you make my life complete, From your funny personality, to your tiny little feet, You are the drums of my heart, as they go 'beat, beat, beat'.
