Melancholia - Poem by Cynthia BuhainBaello

Melancholia devastates
It is just life erosion
Drains the spiritual state
Such a consuming depression.

Melancholia negates
The human will to rise
And conquer cruel Fate
Wipe wasted tears from the eyes.

Melancholia is unhealthy
Must be dealt with at the roots
And with Hope as the recovery
That births the Joy as fruit!

    Yes, melancholia upsets and reduces logic in life, a very real poem. (Report) Reply
