Poem about S.A.D

He's Not The Man He Used To Be
He doesn't know who he is anymore
The dawn of winter is at his door
Not the person he once was
Thought you ought to know
People don't know what it is like
Trapped inside a shell
Who's to know if he doesn't tell
He looks in the mirror unaware he is looking back
Unable to concentrate and is oh so sad
He is not the man he once was
Feelings he has inside
Tell him that they won't subside
Until such time that he may provide
Determination zest.......oh and pride
It will not beat him you should be glad
To know that others
Suffer with this thing called S.A.D
Why can we not just hibernate
Like animals who can not take
The dark and cold of winters rape
