As I suffer in silence
Depression grows deeper.
Picking my brain as
times get worse.
I'm stuck in this rut,
I can't break free.
The silence grows deeper,
As I suffer in agony.

Those around me,
Don't see my pain.
From one place to another,
My depression sinks in more.

I'm in a trance
That I can't get out of.
My pain is on the inside 
Of my gut...
One more reason to
Lose it all...

My pride takes over.
What pride...I'm depressed.
The prednisone is
Eating me away.
One depressant
And I'm over.

This isn't over.
There's only a few 
More days left.
As my suffering in silence
Lets up.
I will start to break free.
My agony turns to dust,
My depression fades away.
It's the prednisone that
kills me... into 
Depresive pain.

    Sound like someone who is sick with some very serious illness that is very depressing..I hope just a topic and not life. Keep the creative pen flowing. Sara
