Assess and Avoid

Run, run–as fast as you can

don’t let it catch you–

that depression, man

just run, fast, faster,

fast as you can


And then what?

  1. My brother-on-law has it now. Seems he got really down when he lost his job. He was a farmer all his adult life (until he sold the farm) and according to my sister he’s not accustomed to taking orders from someone else. Bottom Line … he is now on anti depressants and … anyway I am going to send him this poem. (As a creative person I can relate to this poem myself. “And then what?” Exactly.)


    1. Sorry to hear that about your brother-in-law. Depressionn is no joke; seems like once a person is in it, it is hard to release one’s self from its grip. Thnx for digging the poem enough to pass it on. Maybe it will get a smile out of him:-) > Date: Wed, 29 Aug 2012 02:27:43 +0000 > To: >


  2. I suffered depression for years. I concur with your prescription for avoiding it. Run people, RUN! 🙂


  3. Hope and pray that you really did out run it! 🙂

    Depression is one hell of a thing to let catch you though! I try to ‘sleep it off’ as much as possible.
