Major depression is to be in Hell

Upon your issues you will dwell

It’s not about feeling sad and sorry allday

With therapy and meds you hope they’ll allay

It’s not about moping or vying for attention

It’s aiming for balance, maintenance and retention

Anxiety makes you worry, fear and fret

About situations you would rather forget

Mania feels like energy that keeps going and going

Feeling super productive with your creative juices flowing

Obsession is thoughts that seem unending

Compulsion comes with it and sees me needlessly spending

I’d love to get my life back, be me again

All I can do is plod along day by day until then.
