25 (who?)

It surrounds the earth,
clouding our vision.
Keeping us from seeing
the positive side of things.
It controls our thoughts
and emotions alike. It lives
in everyone, no matter how
good their life. You can try
to run, for it does not chase.
But no matter how fast
or far you run, it
always catches up.

It does not run or fly, nor
does it swim. But for some
reason it always finds you.
It haunts you for all the
days you live.

This poem is about the way depression is and how it acts on people.

When I flashback on my past, I usually become depressed. Your poem describes clearly well that depression does make me or anyone not see the positive things.
