down

i’ve never dealt with depression before
but i find joy in so little, and so much is a bore
the headaches come daily, and i’m tired a lot
and i can’t seem to bring myself to give half a snot
about much of anything; except for maybe
my honey, my grandson, and my new puppy
i don’t wanna eat, and don’t wanna be drunk
i don’t even care about smoking the skunk
maybe it’s just loneliness that’s got me so down
see, i’ve got no real friends in this podunk town
or maybe it’s boredom that has my brain rotting
cause i never get to go anywhere, or do anything
all i know is i don’t like what’s going on in my head
nor the fact that i don’t wanna get outta bed
but i have to cause i’m a full time granddad
and even that sometimes leaves me feeling quite sad
cause i never envisioned life like this at this age
i saw road trips, good times, and earning a wage
not being livid at everyone around me for some assumed
thing they didn’t do wrong, like walking through the room
when i’m in it but want to be left the heck alone
or a neighbor that just needs to borrow the phone
i hope it’s just a funk, a spell, or some sort of phase
cause i don’t think i can handle this too many more days
