Tonight I told Google
That I'm feeling depressed
And in a 28th of a second
It gave me 28 million results
Of ways to diagnose
Or find a pick me up
From coasting these deep blue waves

Telling me that there's a 71% chance
Why I cant sleep at night cause
Cyclothmia is my most likely disease
But it doesn't soothe my sleepless nights
Or make the boss' criticisms hurt any less.
Don't make my shakes
Stop

I need an early night
And to laugh more
At things  I find funny
Stop eating junk-food
And have a spa night
Or maybe go for a jog

Go,
Seek out the doctor
And he'll give you more
Of those little relax pills
That make your hands freeze
And your stomach churn
Maybe tell your mother
To put her blood pressure up
Or your sorta best friend
Who doesn't really care

And watch these motivational videos
That make you tear up and want held
But,
Everyone's out
Again.
And no one worthwhile comes online.
A scrappy one that will never get done.

Comments Appreciated :]

I really love the first  3 stanzas of this piece.  The style reminds me of some of the work of my favourite Australian poet Bruce Dawe. The meter gives the words a real resonance, a melancholia with an underlying cleverness that just makes the whole thing soar, even though your text is so sad.

This is a really beautiful piece. But I'm sorry you are feeling this way.

I believe i know this feeling fairly well myself.

I know, that self-help can really work sometimes, but theres times like this, when all those well-meant self-help concepts just really piss you off...
As for cabin fever respectively "not caring" or things like that... you know, you can always talk to me, if you want. I do really care.

It is hard to get through times like that, because i for myself find, i cant seem to bring myself to do things that i love and KNOW would help me feel better, when i am in this type of phase.
As if there was a massive wall between those things and yourself...

As for the text itself: I like the accents you put in there with the words "STOP" and "GO"... I really like that scheme.
Especially when you used "...go for a jog..." and start the next line with "Go, see  a doctor..."

I think, thats really neat.
