She doesn't talk to people

Hello, it’s nice to meet you, and,
What issues are on your mind?
What are the things important to you, and,
What do you keep confined?

Do you need to resolve conflict, a rage, 
Or calibrate your financial grief?
Or are you lost spiritually,
Have you lost your own belief?

And do you cope by drinking wine,
And then holding a pack of smokes?
Or do you hide away from people,
Not talking to other folks.
If you’re feeling down and out, 
And you’re mentally not feeling great.
Then maybe a nice cushion will help, 
Where you can sit and meditate.

A lighthearted take on a serious subject, depression. It works, Lewis. It says breathe in such polite, gentle and, even, cute ways! A real joy to read ... CayCay
