Depression is like war

You continue to battle

But only against yourself

Every thought is a bullet

Every movement is a punch

And every word is a stab in the heart

Compare depression to a thief

It steals everything you once had or have

Depression is like a zombie

You suffer while your alive

But inside you feel dead

Depression is a bottomless pit

Never ending

No light

No escape

You can fight it

But you either win

Or die trying
