Will you question with me once this question;
Just and only this one?
Are sadness and depression
one and the same?
A hundred companies
claim they have a dozen cures
but not one I can find
claims they have a cure
I don’t think I have depression.
I never could sleep
and I seldom eat, anyway.
I still get up
get to work.
No, this is not depression.
I know for certain, nothing.
I am absolutely certain I know nothing for sure.
I think, though I can’t be sure.
I believe I have sadness.
No one claims on TV to have a cure for sadness.
Does this mean
they would cure your depression
but leave you with a boatload of sadness?
This is one more question than I promised.
I am told the kind of sadness I have takes time for recovery.
You don’t get over it.
You only hope to go through it.
I have already been sad all I want to be sad.
I just haven’t been sad long enough to be over being sad.
How can time cure your sadness if every first time you face
just reminds me I am sad?
Since I cannot stop asking more questions
than I said I would
I will stop,
except to ask you this last one,
Does anyone else ever feel the same?
