Hopelessness turning around

Waking up late

Every morning

Contemplating my fate

Every evening

Trying to be

What you’re supposed to be

Failing every step of the way

 

Bad decisions

All day long

A mental prison

Chained forever

Want to break free

From these harsh realities

Realizing it’s not possible

 

Laying down

To rest once again

A feeling so profound

Tearing me out of sleep

A glimmer of hope

Comes to me again

This time I’ll change

 

Standing up

Feelings explode within

A drink from a simple cup

Rejuvenates the soul

I take charge

The wheels turn

And hopelessness turns around
