Melancholy Thoughts

A sonnet

My mind meandered in melancholy

swam in seas of selfishness and sorrow

down in depressions depth I was drowning

I hungered for hope, but still felt hollow

I wasted all my days getting wasted

those blackout nights only dug me deeper

at some point I knew I’d have to face it

fears festered at the thought of my future

A change had to come from somewhere within

a mind modification , if you will

would I be strong enough to conquer this?

difficult answers only time could tell

When I fed my faith with optimism

I finally escaped my depression.
