The hardest thing I had to do!!!

The hardest thing I ever had to do!
The first was get out of bed
See when you have a roommate like depression
The clothes are always left on the floor
The dishes are never clean
And is that smell me!
See with depression you know you need to go to the grocery store but going to jack n the box would save so much more time.
See with depression it’s telling your wife I will never drink another energy drink
Even though you’ve had four
And they are hidden at the bottom of the trash
Because with depression it’s so much easier to hide the evidence than beg for forgiveness once more.
The hardest thing I had to do is not get out of bed but look behind me and convince my shadow I was worth following!!!!
