Eyes closed. Hope absent.
Thoughts that surface only torment
Loneliness on my mind consumes
Making me feel like darkness looms
Can the negativity be true?
At this point I have no clue
Is it easier to assume the worst?
Why believe you must be cursed?
Optimism becomes hard to find
Searching through a clouded mind
Clarity now must be ahead
Answers to my mind soon shed
Waiting for the storm to pass
Fighting not to be in the mass
Finding comfort in a lie
To hold me back so I don’t cry
Now it seems there is hope in sight
The illusion revealed of false plight
Why worry about the unreal
Is it that I need sorrow to feel?
Perhaps this is how I define life
This is why I may lose my wife
I understand the way I can be
Only now have I eyes that see
Exude negative and that’s what you get
This is how my fate was met
Too late to change and make it good?
Either way make effort I should
New direction I have taken
All my beliefs are now shaken
