The media is saying
Paris Jackson tried to meet her end
And so for her and so many others I am praying
As suicide is something I can comprehend
As a psychiatric nurse
For so many years
I have seen and heard the worst
Held many hands,dried many tears
Getting down so low
Does not make you crazy
And depression in case you don’t know
Is more than feeling blue or being lazy
Some find it hard to cope
And stress can take it’s toll
But with support comes hope
Like medicine for the soul!
Eat,pray,love and know depression is a real illness needing professional help!
