Depression is a dogged sickness,
Depressing the healthy body to weakness.
Depression is a hopeless sight,
holding humans on ransom with fright.
Depression is an emotional threat,
leaving the mind helpless to seek for death.
Depression comes after misfortune,
when tireless hard work brings no fortune.
Depression drives the body and mind to fear,
bringing dreaded symptoms that are hard to bear.
Depression is an unusual mental state,
cursing happiness to loose its weight.
Depression is the loss of positive feelings,
giving the heart a constant heavy beating.
