Depression (Like A Ten-Ton Truck)

Depression hits you
Like a ten-ton truck.

One minute you are down
Then you are up.

With depression
there is no in-between.

You are in a dark tunnel
with no light to be seen.

You try to pull through
Try to cheer up.

You are sick of people
telling you:
'Enough is enough.'

It's energy-sapping
And you're always feeling rough.

When you're feeling worthless
friends and family you can't trust.

They are hanging around
Making a scene.

You know that they are worried -
still - you want them to leave.

Depression
is a very selfish
'State of Mind'.

But when you got Depression
no other 'State' can you find

When people say to you:
'It's time to cheer up.'

That is when it hits you
Like a ten-ton truck...
