For all of those who suffer from depression...There is a way out : )


By Mychael John Thomas

Dropping to the depths far beneath the guts and blood
As real as it gets when you wallow in the mud
Far beneath the torment of the jailor in your mind
Give up all pretension…Ain’t no telling what you’ll find
Have you lived there till you’ve lost
All that freedom that’s been granted to us all?

You can sense something wrong
But ignoring when it hurts
Don’t you want to learn the song
Of a healing universe?
Reach deep into your cellar
And bring out a new content
Come out of the basement

Something happened long ago that caused you to decide
To settle to the bottom and the safest place to hide
Where feelings all get murky and truth becomes obscure
No one asks you questions…You don’t really want no cure
You’re not fooling anyone
Do you think the time to face the truth has come?



Keep on living in the dark…
You may never know it when you’ve gone too far?
