Mom and Dad,
Safety and some place to go to,
Things most have.
Happiness is safety,
Like a place to go home to,
During a war there is no home,
Not even love.
Sometimes this war is depression,
A long battle,
Difficult to overcome in its entirety,
Like every war,
Depression is something you can’t fight on your own,
Some things in the war remind you of what it was like,
What it was like before the war,
They give moments of clarity,
They show you what you’re fighting for.
These things can be simple as a smile,
Or as important as,
A long meaningful talk,
A good hug.
When you receive these,
The battle is easier to fight for a moment,
So please give it to others,
Share the clarity,
Win a war.
