So much truth. Nicely penned. :)
very true..."Modern day problems" indeed...
Never give up, never give in.
A very true write Hank. it's more common than one thinks.
I can empathise with the sad frog (it's not easy being green) but yes we need to be strong and fight back inside and outside!
It depends ...some are strong , some are weak , for some the situations are tricky they can neither be both
Advancing mankind by the decimation or worse of the rest of nature is failure in ensuring our survival.
the strong ones fight back, there's much truth in that.. not everyone comes through it alive.
What an exquisite creature!There is much to be depressed about in the world - it takes a lot of strength to keep it at bay.
Yes, the strong do fight back. Despite the world problems, we have to find a way to survive and thrive.
Intriguing! Love the frog... :D
so true that modern day problems can be a burden but the strong ones overcome them!
May you always be one of the fighters, Hank, never giving in to the things that oppress !Whirligig Bits and Pieces
Sadly some are not strong enough to fight back. Hopefully the strong can be an inspiration to the weaker ones.
We all have to fight back at some point
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,Elizabeth
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.
I love the photo of that poor sad frog, so sweet. Also love in your poem "the strong fight back". So true. Happy Sunday, Hank.
depression is a beautiful way to say something close to our heart.
"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.
"The strong ones fight back"---that's the way it is, Hank. Depressions be better addressed with right attitude. Happy Easter!
That frog really did look sad. It helps if there are friends to help fight against depression.
It is always worth fighting back, Hank. A fitting poem this Easter - hopeful and determined.
i love depression in action.what a creative write.
What an encouraging write! Nicely penned.
Well done, Hank!
Depression inspires creativity in so many ways.
It is so important to fight back depression. That's your best line. Good job Hank.
Nicely done Hank! Hope everyone can fight depression.
Love the awareness here, in short lines...
Sometimes one's own strength is not enough to fight back...Waning Sunshine
