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.
