A Point for Consideration

In depression’s thrall,
it is hard to keep perspective
about your own awfulness.

But please consider:
Have you committed genocide?
Are you worse than Hitler?
Do you aspire
of evildoers?

Will you study for years
to figure out the finest route to massacre?
Build a lair inside a volcano?
Shave your head,
get a cat to stroke malevolently,
and hold the world hostage to your whims?

That all sounds like an awful lot of work.

Perhaps you might try the less complicated path
of being kind to yourself
