Black Dogs - White Horses

Black Dogs - White Horses



I had written this poem some time back and it had been on the back burner as depression is not something most people want to talk about although the % of population who suffer from it hovers around the 17% mark.

Des Wade is a singer, award winning songwriter and musician who just happened to post on another site a piece of music called White Horses which I liked and my poem was called Black Dogs and White Horses.

Des had indicated he was happy enough for his music to be used as a backing for a video clip and so I took him at his word, polished the poem and pummelled it to fit in with the music and the end result is this video clip which I hope you might like.

I may not always succeed in making a difference, but I will go to my grave knowing I at least tried.

Well done Maureen, a lot of feeling in those words. A well chosen piece of music fits the atmosphere. Great images as well. Thank you for sharing.

Cheers
