Sad woman, don’t you cry! (a child’s perspective on depression)

Friends, let’s talk about lack of success for just a moment. Yours truly was deeply depressed while she was raising her daughter. She cried many times every day. Her daughter later told her she only remembers seeing it happen twice. If she could do that even though the daughter had the only bedroom the apartment had to offer, you can do it too. Because here’s what happens when you don’t.

A poet is the strangest sort of soul
You in this life may e'er expect to meet
More broken even while more truly whole,
Innocently intending well, more sweet

Than any but a five year old should be
Unfit to meet a callused world's demand
Or to behave aught expediently
All grace in flight; an albatross on land

Do not the all too common error make
Do not fall into the too easy trap
Avoid the fatal egoic mistake
Imagining that poet be a sap

Powerful spirits classic and antique
Give voice when poets ope their mouths to speak

  1. I’m glad that I was able to express the painful effect of a parent’s depression on the child. The purpose of this blog post was to create awareness, to urge the adults to seek help and to provide psychological help for themselves and for their children, through depression and after.
    I’m honored and grateful for linking to my blog!
