Silent, but deadly

Depression isn’t a dragon

That overtly threatens

And awakens

Vanquishing knights

Inside ourselves.


It is a silent enemy

That infiltrates

And becomes part of the landscape,

Assuming more and more prominence

Until takeover

Is accomplished.

To mount an insurrection

We must develop

A vigilant network

Of counter-spies

Snooping through the mundane,

Sniffing out each plot,

Shoring up

The sagging bulwarks

Of equanimity.

~November 3, 1992~
