Desolation of the mind

Vanquished thoughts tear at my mind

Downtrodden and disheartened.

I wonder lost in a marsh of anguish,

Searching, ever seeking

Constantly running, hiding, changing.

Yet always finding the pit of despair

Grim outcomes, bashing and beating

leaving me miserable and desolate.

But there is always just one star shining

drawing me in, keeping me hopeful

yet downcast, beaten, broken I remain!
