The Melancholy Blues - Poem by Casey Lyon

Depression controls every single one of us
For some people, depression barely exists
But for the rest of us, we are doomed to live depressed

Depression makes you unhappy
Makes you think trying suicide
Makes you think about the wonders about death
Depression causes us to hurt the ones we love day by day

We want to get help but never seem to be able to
A shred of hope left in us in those we love
Hoping they will save us from this black-hole
That we keep falling into

Depression controls us, our feelings and our mind…
And we battle it every day with tiredness.
