Depression Kills

Depression Kills

A Poem by Jenny Leigh
"

A poem about someone suffering from depression.

"
She paints a smile, upon her face 
to hide the pain.
No one knows, what she feels 
inside her head.

She says she's fine, even though 
she wants to scream.
People walk by, never knowing she 
is feeling dread.

She sits quiet, each day at lunch 
and no one cares.  
Her mom is gone, her kids are grown
and she's alone.

Her husband try's, to show his love 
the best way he can.
But she's so tired, she's finally given up
and ready to go home.

They paint a smile, upon her face 
to hide her death.
