Depression: Some Advice..... [a Reminder And A Warning To All, Depressed Or Not] Poem by Bri Edwards

Depression: Some Advice..... [a Reminder And A Warning To All, Depressed Or Not]

I suppose we all can have....a “bad day”,
whether we’re at work or we’re at play.
But on “bad days” there’s still stuff to enjoy,
whether you’re a woman or man or girl or boy.

Most of us still can walk;
at forward motion our feet don’t balk.
We still have enough teeth to eat a meal,
even if some teeth are “false”, not real.

Most can see the glorious sun and feel its heat,
and most, when needed, have a toilet seat.
We have fans to cool us when it’s hot,
and heaters to warm us when it’s not.

And for those few of you who STILL say “life’s a bitch”,
you can often choose.....your own life to ditch.
BUT think before you pull the trigger or cut yourself with knife,
‘cause, once you’re dead, you CAN NOT ……retrieve your life.

PLUS: If you attempt suicide and fail,
you may find yourself crippled and/or in jail.
So be SURE you're sober and talk your problems out,
even if you have to LOUDLY shout!

Topic(s) of this poem: depression
i don't recall, but maybe i was having a 'bad day' when i started this poem. having something to do, which one enjoys, like i enjoy writing poetry, can be a help. yes! committing suicide is against the law in some places. or attempting it at least. maybe if one succeeds, the police don't make an arrest. hmm? :) smile

Well done! I those with depression will appreciate that this poem gives advice without becoming preachy. It just lightly nudges and says look on the bright side... I think at large the fact that it rhymes keeps it from becoming preachy and makes it more enjoyable. ~Nika
