I’ve got the right to be depressed,

if I do not feel at my best.

Just as I might have felt quite happy,

when my life was not so crappy.


You bet I’m sad when things go bad

and ponder yonder life I had.

I can’t help but count the cost

of the life that I’ve now lost.


When thinking of the nitty-gritty.

I’m exhausted with self pity.

I feel that’s justifiable,

whilst things aren’t rectifiable.


My mind stays open and plays host

to most unkind and callous ghosts.

When they do their heartless haunting

then I feel ‘all’ life is daunting.


Most of the ghosts contrast my past,

which makes me even more downcast.

As I reminisce for hours,

depression comes and overpowers.


Harking back to yesterday

doesn’t make it go away.

In fact it acts in the reverse,

making depression that much worse.


I know things in my life go wrong,

but I must keep on being strong.

So now I think I really ought

to rid myself of bad, sad thought.


I’ve got the right to be depressed,

if I do not feel at my best,

but maybe if I fake the happy,

my life may not feel quite so crappy.
