Alone with Depression (Poem)

4-7.14

Widow Willow

A lone
      Sullen
             Tree exists in the dark ground
Surrounded by
      Green
             Luscious grass

It is sullen
      For it appears as a willow
             Two L’s
             Replace a D
                    And the sullen nature is seen with a human face
                           In deep sadness at the loss of her life partner
                           Estranged now from the wholeness of her mate

So often the lonely and destitute are left alone
      Even in a luscious life of green
             Red
             Gold
             Many colors of happy beauty we perceive from the outside
             The lone widow willow is left in their loneliness
All the beauty around them is achromic
      This is the power of depression
      This is what to fight

For depression is not cured by desert oasis
      Beautiful and plentiful
             It is still isolated by the sands of ignorance

For the lone trees
      Plant yourself around them
             Not intertwined in interaction
      Just plant yourself so that you are there
             And they are no longer alone
