Depression 2K11

D epression arrests young and old alike;  
E ntirely consuming with an ill strike.  
P eace seemingly but a distant bygone.  
R eality; Entrenched in battles far from won.  
E motions blue and grey. World war three!  
S elf-imprisonment; Lusting to be free.  
S elf-esteem plumets; What sadness numbing!  
I t's oft a punch one doesn't see coming.  
O n rock bottom, one may choose to rise forth;  
N o sadness outlasts souls will to live forth.
