For all those who think depression is just a life choice.

Life Choice?

 

Seems to me that some people think

depression is something that we choose to sink

down into, get swallowed up whole,

that the blackness is just the dust of coal.

Some things don’t just disappear,

maybe I should try and make that clear.

It’s not a case of changing choices,

but listen to those condemning voices --

Come on now, it’s not that bad,

snap yourself out of feeling sad.

You’re wallowing in misplaced guilt,

all your tears for nothing spilt;

Get a grip, and lighten up,

change it to a half-filled cup!”

Not everything can be rose-tinted,

optimism rather stinted;

you think that you just know it all,

but some of us can’t help but fall.

Some things don’t go, cannot be solved,

some problems can’t just be resolved.

Don’t treat me now with condescension,

for that lack of empathy increases tension;

so maybe you’re not feeling blue --

well, all I’ll say is ‘Lucky You!’
