Depressive Inner Minds

Acoustic poem

Depressive Inner Minds

Drowning fear scares our

inner peace as humanity

shatters thoughts, screaming inside our

troubled souls, a depressive haze of

ruin weakens our spirit with

angry responses, a shameful disgrace as

chaos wrecks our worried minds and

traumatic lives distract us in fury as

instrumental thinking messes with an

offending innocence with a

nastiness to push us down.
