Is it in You?

Depression, depression is the thing that comforts you after you get fired from a job, because really, you didn't deserve to be there anyway, depression is the thing that secludes you from the world, because your not good enough to be apart of it. Depression is the thing that allows you to sit on the sofa day in and day out, gorging yourself with food to the point where your so full you cant feel anything but the sharp pains in your stomach. Depression is something you ultimately create but can't destroy, because you allow it to control you. Depression is the thing that kills. Is it in you?
