An Unkind Slight

In the past

no one suffered

with depression

instead they

were looked upon

as in need of confession.

A stiff upper lip

was always required

should someone,

your health enquire.

When troubles called

you did your best,

unhappily not

everyone could

pass this test.

These people were

shut away out of sight,

an embarrassment

not talked about

in case of an unkind slight

Thankfully this is

no longer the case,

depression has found

its proper place,

Where sympathy

and help are now on offer

for us poor souls

that are unfortunate to suffer.
