Being And Seeker by Elena Ray
Watching this happen to you from afar
is not just distressing but right on par
with not watching me when it happened here.
Caused by stress you might say but I do fear
that, like our height and our brown hair, these screams
pulsing inside us came straight from our genes.
You can choose, of course, to just let it ride
but depression can't be taken in stride--
nor the despair of the weakening soul
that searches for the elusive loophole,
nor the task of the body to survive
the booze and the pills flying this nosedive.
Come back to yourself, sweet being of Light,
before you succumb to your last midnight.
