A couple poems that I wrote on a bad day.
This is the desert of your mind
hope and happiness are covered by
layers of prickling despair
shelter from the scorching pressure of your own
expectations exists, but it's impossible to find
One misstep and you're drowning in
a sea of your own self doubt
The more you struggle to get free the faster you sink
Your mind is desperate for contentment
but you're in an endless drought
As night falls, ice cold fear of disappointment seeps into your soul
You pray to the stars for a home
Someone who will love and accept you no matter the sand clinging to your skin
But nobody comes
No one even realizes that you're trapped there
In your dry, barren, lonely mind

It isn't about how many times you pulled yourself up
It's how quickly you get dragged back down
