Living the dream

Down we go

Driven by meaningless impulses

Illogical, senseless

Powerful, compelling

Resistance is draining

Difficult to sustain

Overcome by fatigue, my focus wavers for a second

Darkness enters again

Not deep and penetrating

But enough to keep me down

Each time the melancholy lifts

I see light

I bounce back

I chide myself

For my self-indulgent moping

Whatever, I manage

The story of my life

Head down, coping, no worries

Everyone has difficulties

Most far greater, much graver

So I’m told, in roundabout ways

So I tell myself, directly

Get over them

You are living the dream
