DEPRESSION IS SPREADING


 

(10/14/11)

 

Depression is spreading – like the disease that it is

 

No matter where you go – no matter where you live.

 

It takes over your mind- then spreads to every limb

 

Depression is a disease which is hard to win.

 

every one loses in the end

 

As you turn your back on family and friends.

 

It grows like cancer every day

 

And some things you can do

 

But nothing you can say.

 

You feel empty and hollow inside

 

To a point you start to cry.

 

Some times it’s a tightness in your stomach

 

That never stops , and your chest feels like

 

It’s about to explode

 

These are some symptoms that we’ve been told.

 

It can also include fits of rage

 

And it will grow stage by stage

 

To a point that you actually lash out

 

This is what depression is all about.

 

Most will go under a doctors care

 

To find out how it came about

 

But it is a growing sickness

 

Of that there is no doubt.
