Are You One Who Does Know - Poem by Francis Duggan

Are you one who does know of the dark moods of despair
And have come to realize life to some is not always fair
And on your worst days give some thought to suicide
But love of life is never easily denied
To the higher self through tough times you stay true
And to carry on with living credit you are due
For of mental depression you know all too well
And you do know about living in Earthly Hell
There are so many like you in every town
Who knows how it feels to feel mentally down
But for some the burden of sadness becomes too much to bear
And the victims of suicide are no longer rare
The dark moods of sadness are with you today
It is so hard to smile when you are feeling this way.
