Depression. - Poem by Gangadharan nair Pulingat..

The youthful days the happiest moments
The life itself in its perfect mood
Where mind is free from stresses and strains
The learning intellect in its own spirit.

The young son the hope of family
His worthiness as a human being
Important to family and the society no doubt
Expecting the growth and thereupon the job.

One day he comes in a pessimistic mood
Throws away the books and keeps mum
Not listening others, and sits in his room
Not bothered to tell anything to anyone

Days passes his reluctance for involvement
Family and community slowly he withdraws
Unable to understand the causes, they feels sad
Their hopes for a better future comes to futile
Here comes, the case of a depression sometimes.

Better to engage in matters of important
To play with others with less strains and anxiety
The world is perfect for living with happiness
Efforts to be a better future of life awaiting.

    Have been battling it for many years now. Medications can help but it consumes all happiness. Makes one completely non functional. Thanks for sharing this. It's a very lonely world out here for us who are depressed (Report) Reply

    Beautiful poem on Depression. It can always happen any time. If treated in initial stage, it can be cured. Especially parents and friends can help the boy to come out of depression easily. Usually, children don't discuss many things openly, this is the main reason when parents comes to know of it too late. They may show anger, sadness unknowingly. Parents have to keep on looking for changes...meaningful write especially for the youths of todays..Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

    Now a days, depression drowns the life of many youngsters.... It has to be treated at the initial stage itself.... requires counselling and empathetic attitude from others. It is unfortunate if a boy who is the hope of a family suddenly falls to depression...! . Poignant and thoughtful write! (Report) Reply
