Depression - ACROSTIC

Depression Acrostic 


Depression, it’s not just in your head,
Enslaving your soul, “I’d be better off dead.”
Poisoning your attitude
Retarding your mood.
Eternal slumber,
Solitude replaces laughter, 
Sailing out into the sea of tears,
In my head, I scream, but no one cares,
On and on I scream, no one hears,
Not a soul, my pleas fall on deaf ears.


Composed by:
S. Ronthorpe

    well, I had seen this one before, but rereading it, I still LOVE it. You did very well with defining this disease.

    This is a very descriptive acrostic which is aesthetically pleasing the way you have it displayed.

    Samuel, it is hard to understand. I am married to someone with depression AND anxiety, not to mention a multitude of other health issues like diabetes, asthma, etc. I really feel for him and try my best to support him. I hope you find support and that you are on meds too. Those seem to help somewhat! Luv, Andrea
