Feels like I’m walking in molasses
Stumbling blind without my glasses
Dark clouds fall be for my eyes
Depression is my new disguise

D rawing all the energy out of me
E veryone can look and see
P ain on my face and misery
R einforcining every negativity
E xpressionless I sat and stare
S pace in all around me bare
S uch is life I hear you say
I hope it never comes you way
O nly time can heal I fear
N ormal service soon I hear

So till then the tablets take
From them I would like a break
But then a the gloom would soon descend
Tell me will there be an end

    Depression is bad company..I have dealt with my grandson who was diagnosed with Huntington's Disease at age 18 but even before the diagnosis from about 13 it was really bad..He finally is meds that seem to help..Of all things, they put him on Lithium and it lifted the depression..Great work describing the illness.I hope not you but just a topic.Exercise is a great help as is a well balanced diet free from foods that would raise blood glucose too fast.Enjoyed your work.Thanks for stopping by.Sara
