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.
