Feeling Down

Despite having gotten my orthodonture off last week,
despite the beautiful loving wife,
despite being the pround parent of a devastatingly cute 2 year old boy and a beautiful 2 month old girl,
despite making a livable wage,
despite owning my own home,
despite not being hungry, at war, in danger…
