Depression (chapter 3)


Sometimes sadness

Washes over me

Like a sneaker

With no true legitimacy

My soul is engulfed

In a blackness

That blots out

Any hope, love or reason

That I can see


In my day to day

I take the time

To make the effort

To be productive and prudent and fair

When I’m alone I set aside

That responsibility

Once the sun goes down

I just don’t care


There’s a balance

Striving to exist

In the universe

That matches every high

With a low

My life has been blessed

Maybe more so than the rest

But at the end

What have I got to show

Has my time here

Made a difference

I’d have to say no

Ah, SB, I think an awful lot of people are going to relate to this. I've never thought of depression in relation to a sneaker before so...
Seriously, nice work.
