Depression Is An Illness - Poem by Donna Caldwell

Depression is an illness
You don’t just feel depressed
You cannot eat
You cannot sleep
When you’re feeling overstressed

Depression is an illness
You don’t just feel depressed
You cannot cope
You have no hope
When you’re feeling overstressed

Depression is an illness
You don’t just feel depressed
You always cry
You want to die
When you’re feeling overstressed

Depression is an illness
You don’t just feel depressed
Please seek advice
It could save your life
When you’re feeling overstressed
