Depression is a Disease

I’m my own worst critic,
constantly disapproving of myself.

So many disparaging comments
enter into my head
and settle there
until the depression
becomes part of me.

How pathetic am I
that I can’t even control my mind
and stop these negative thoughts.

They have taken over
like a disease
consuming me
from the inside out.
