The Depression Hole

The Depression Hole

Written and illustrated by C. Fulsty

Cee, the panda,

is stuck in a hole.

It happened to Cee

as he was taking a stroll.

Cee didn’t mean

to fall right in.

No one plans

on having depression.

The hole is deep,

but Cee is at the top.

With every bad thought,

Cee begins to drop.

The ledges crumble

and Cee falls deeper.

The lower Cee gets,

the hole gets steeper.

Cee doesn’t know

others are stuck too.

They’re in a depression hole,

Cee never knew.

Cee thinks, “My life is good.

I shouldn’t feel sad.”

Cee falls further

because of thoughts that are bad.

Cee doesn’t think

he will ever get out.

“Are you ok?”

Cee hears someone shout.

Cee looks up

to see a ladder drop.

Will he take the help

to get back to the top?

The first step

is always the hardest part.

Opening up

is a good place to start.

“Being judged

won’t bother me.”

“Being happy,

I will fight to be!”
