A Cruel Paradox

The cruel paradox of depression is that you want to hide away until you feel better. But you cannot feel better while you hide away.

Don’t give up the fight.
Don’t give up the fight.
Wake with rising sun at dawn.
Put some real clothes on.
Meet with friends old and new.
Let them speak the truth to you.
Wash your face. Eat a meal,
No matter what you feel.
Don’t look back, straight ahead.
No more prisoner to your bed.
Two steps foward. One step back.
Don’t get lost in the black.
One little step toward the light.
Don’t give up the fight.
