If you ever feel depressed,
read a book or take a rest.
Get this feeling off your chest
before it plants a seed or nest.
If you ever feel weak or helpless
and there is no one near to address,
then take a moment to access
the gift of your awareness.
If you ever feel that no one knows
how life on this Earth arose,
then walk your path as far it goes
and never dare to bring it close.
If you ever feel that no one cares
about your private yet grand affairs,
then show your mien and lofty airs
through the flow of your quiet tears.
If you ever feel that god has fled,
rejoice and sing for he is dead.
Forget the tears that you have shed.
Now’s your chance to get ahead.
