The Chase (Thank You, Carol Rhodes) - Poem by Fred Babbin

Depression chases after
As I run ahead
Away from the blues

As fast as my running shoes
Will take me
Around the corner
Down the road I fly

With the wind behind
And no hills to climb
Depression chases after
Depression chases after
And catches me
