Depressed

(In response to Jade’s "I Never")  

Now that the Christmas solstice,
Suffering has come to past  
Prepare for the Spring Equinox  
Tiss the time of depressing Lent  
 
When the Yuletide season  
Of painful kayas is replaced  
With boring days of morose  
When the soul is oppressed  
 
Then, like Christ during Passover  
Enjoy your last tasteless supper  
Of bitter herbs and boiled meat  
Before we walk the trail of somber  
 
Strolling the Garden of Gethsemane  
Among the fruiting Pecan trees  
Realize the little pain we suffer  
Then going through life gloomily    
 
So, take up your cross to climb,  
Calvary in determination    
After your suffer crucifixion  
And your subsequent resurrection  
 
You’ll discover it is better  
To experience pain and abide  
Then to live in an endlessly  
Unhappy and depressed
