Depression

I have no reason to smile, no reason to cry.
No reason to live, no reason to die.

I have no reason to laugh, no reason to pout
no reason to whisper, no reason to shout.

I have no reason to sleep, no reason to pray
I don't have a reason to see another day.

No reason to stand, no reason to crawl
no reason to fly to reason to fall.

I have no reason to fail, no reason to be
the best
No reason to go on, I must be depressed

    This is a beautiful poem. Sometimes we feel so damn depressed that we find no reason, , to go on. You said it well man.
