Depression and the Holidays


Holidays may bring upon an old “friend”.  Here is a poem I wrote about it, and a song my friend Nashville Joe wrote.  He lives in Florida!

Holiday blues

poisonous thoughts

paralyzing fears

unrealistic expectations

wrapped with bows

stockings filled

with sadness

hanging on the

chimney with care

red and green

lights blinking

feelings on and off

candy cane dreams

garland and bows

tinsel trappings

frozen in time
