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!
