Perspectives: Made of Depression
Depression, What you make of it.
Depression, Whats your take on it.
Ever felt low?
Angry to let go?
Detached like velcro?
Echo, echo, echo, That smile in
Retro, retro, re, retrospect,
Jumping jacks for just half a sec,
Smashed my quest, to find happiness,
In full effect to just walk these steps,
As weeks progressed the other half I slept.
Scared to be, crippling alone.
Sittin’ in, agony, whistling at home.
Thinking bout the lows,
Thinking bout the regrets I loath,
Friends I drove away,
Grab a comb, toothbrush,
Grab a change of clothes,
Grab a bus today.
Know you’re worth, don’t break apart.
Move forth, your heart is bliss.
Don’t wish to be who you aren’t.
and dismiss who you are!
Oh hell, i’d yell at my brain cells,
Naw at my nails when I ain’t well,
I dwell till my face pale,
Till my eyes swell,
For the things I felt,
Only time will tell,
Be the best myself I know, I know, I know! Cause
Depression, what you make of it?
Depression, what’s your take on it?
