Damn Depression

The night is slowly fading in my mind

I feel it coming, yet can’t stop the change

The balance is shifting slowly

And before I know it, the clouds invade

Like a river flows to the ocean

The past failures begin to push in

Churning up and recreating hurt

That I can not escape

I can not change all that pain

I can not go back and make anything right

But my mind locks me in

And the depressive grip is tight

I know this is not reality

I know this is not the truth

But my mind has pushed my emotions down

And created this false sense of worth

I want to stop it

I want it to let me go

I just pray that I can keep my head up

And not let the hurt show
