Mary Ellen is still just a kind person Who wants to help

by Moe Armstrong


She was sitting at a table
Selling books about
Depression

Had VHS video cassettes
Also

I bought them all

Books and videos

Wanted out from my ongoing
Depression

She was nice to me, then
She is nice to me, now

There is not a lot kindness in the
World

Because

There probably aren’t a lot of
Kind people

Power and prestige
Seems to be what people want

Me, I just take some mental relief
Peace of mind is what I want

I have always been the kid
From the wrong side of the tracks

Who washed out from the military

Struggled with major depression
PTSD and even Schizophrenia

I need kindness….

Mary Ellen is still just a kind person

Who wants to help
And wants to get some help

She is real and struggles……

The past two days were wonderful

Being with her and remembering

Twenty years…..
