POEM – Lost

Lost is a poem reflecting the inner emotions of depression.  I originally published this in 2006 and decided to bring it out of the vault to share at a time when so many people are going through dark times.  Believe me, I understand.

Each day I wake up thinking to myself

Can I make it through another day of hell?

Don’t wanna get out of bed

But I’ve gotta shake these voices in my head

They’ve got me wishing I was dead

Or someplace else instead

Of this life of fighting a losing battle

Can’t get on my saddle and take control

Feels like I’m losing my soul

My dreams, my self-respect, my ambitions

All replaced with fear

Waiting in vain for a better tomorrow

But damn! There goes another year

And I’m still here, in the same shit

The same sorry-assed merry-go-round

The cold reality in this lonely world
