Lost in a sea of self accusation,
torture, despair, and self-flagelation,
My past failures were all I could see,
crushing my hopes and ruining me.
Out of the blue I found an old song,
lost and forgotten from days gone long.
when I played it I was taken away,
To memories of a happier day.
Now though my work is still set before me,
I know these feelings aren’t all that shall be.
Even when sadness makes us feel numb,
Know that happiness also will come.
