As days grow colder and the sky turns grey
Winter sadness begins, darkening my day.
Tired and listless, no joy do I find-
S.A.D. has arrived clouding my mind.

I looked for escape,a way out of my pain
Took a long nap but where was the gain
Turned on the t.v.,stared at the screen-
Flicked the channels what did I glean?

Called my friend,it was soon very clear
She's filled with joy,can't bear her
cheer.
Picked up a book,one filled with gore-
Only to learn I"ve read it before.

Maybe some food will give me relief
Of this down feeling,however brief.
I looked for escape to make my day bright-
Then I recalled, TURN TO THE LIGHT.

The poem was good, keep writing. You were so close to the word limit. I would suggest a few more stanza's.

Your rhyming patterns worked well.

Keep writing
