Clinical Depression isn't clinical.
Clinical is clean, sterile and neat
Depression tears families apart. It doesn't discriminate.
It can creep up on the young or old, or even the rest of us.
It feels like, "why bother?" It’s not sadness or even euphoria.
It's not knowing what happened, or even why.
But just knowing that help exists
Can help you through the abyss.
Medication isn’t cheating.
It's just helping re-define the paths and pathways,
so you feel something less stressful
But most important, is friends and family that
offer guidance, nurturing, and love.
Instead of catcalls, and being told to "get off the pity pot"
