D for Depression

Moody off tangent
Cuts rightly on emotions
Woes situations

Modern day problems
Impinge on innocent man
The strong ones fight back

  15. We don't like to think of the down side on the scale of balance, even though it is a part of our reality. I like what you have written and believe it is a Universal,

  16. I think depression strikes all of us at one time...it is sad when some cannot fight back. The frog picture is a perfect illustration of your poem.

  19. "Impinge on innocent man"---yes, depression can hit anyone....no one deserves it or gets it as a punishment for some flaw of character or fault of behavior....depression just impinges on the innocent....anyone is fair game.
