Autumn and SAD

Autumn brings a change
when darkness comes too early
life can take a turn
SAD comes forth with depression
pleasures once known may be gone
sleeping may be more
energy waning, despite
dozing throughout night
slowing down movements and speech
restlessness, pacing, wringing
feeling less than worth
guilt taking over a life
concentration’s hard
forget making decisions
leaving feels as an option
it may start out young
but age is not the factor
more importantly
getting help is what matters
