The Danger Of Depression


Be not depressed. Depression, is the thief of happiness.
Like all thieves', he must be combated and defeated.

Like all thieves', depression must be fought with great
vigor and resolve.

Depression, the dark cloak of reason, that blocks most
rational thought and any chance of happiness.

Depression, an emotional straight jacket, confining the
depressed to an infusion of negativity and haplessness.

Depression, withdrawal of social
interaction and an elongated state of sadness.

Depression, a disease that like a
cancer, eats away at your very being.

Depression, a desperate battle between
living...and merely existing.

Depression, an enemy, that one must seek help
to do battle with.

Do not stand ideally by, for depression,
will steal your very soul.

The enemies of depression, are social
interaction, happiness, love, understanding
and seeking medication or help in some form.
DO IT!

    A positive poem by all means. We need such poems. Unhappiness is the cause of our depression. Our incapacity to fight with realities cause depression. We need a reflection on our thoughts. Mind is not steady. It behaves like a restless monkey. Mind is to be brought to stillness, calmness. The way out? Only the path of concentraton. Only by broadening our vision. Only by listening to people who have achieved greatness despite their adverse conditions. Can we take Helen Keller as our role model? Or Edison, Farady, Stepehsnon, Booker T Washington or Dickens who have achieved great measures in life despite their poor circumstances? We have eyes but do not see. This is our own problem.

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
