Blue Solution

You correctly surmise that I’m down
’cause my face is covered in frown,
but depression gives focus
to problems that choke us,
until a solution is found.

    “So what could be so useful about depression? Depressed people often think intensely about their problems. These thoughts are called ruminations; they are persistent and depressed people have difficulty thinking about anything else. Numerous studies have also shown that this thinking style is often highly analytical. They dwell on a complex problem, breaking it down into smaller components, which are considered one at a time.”
