A poem written about a time when life was extremely difficult. When accident or injury can make every day expenses hard to meet. When you can’t pay bills and creditors want their pound of flesh. When you simply can’t meet your commitments and the sheriff turns up to take belongings to pay creditors even when you have nothing of value. It’s easy to fall into depression when things get on top of you. Many will never know what it’s like to be deeply depressed and loose sight of what can be done when you let others help instead of doing everything alone. Depression is a mental illness because it is a severely crippling condition with varying degrees of severity. This disease affects one in three and everyone around them. If you know someone and not sure what to say, just listen. Help is out there for everyone. If you are suffering don’t feel like you will be misunderstood. FIND SOMEONE YOU CAN TRUST and talk. You can tell them just to listen and hear you. Find professional support if you have no one.
