 Rose Petal's Lyrical Reign

Stay the Course


 

A glimpse through the window of depression
The writing, a free form of therapeutic session

Emotions bottled up, sealed, for no one can know or see
The crashing wave of uncontrollable pain hits unexpectedly

The lower pit of the stomach churns with deep irregularity
Then creeps up your spine with a chilling sick familiarity

Overwhelming is it's strength as it lets nothing stand in its way
It will attack when least expected, morning, night or day

There are ways in which to force these waves to subside
You either breakdown in weakness and cry…or try to hide

The more you hide, the more persistent it then becomes
And after crying all the tears you have left…you're alone and numb

You think you've won the battle but you haven't won the war
So it's time to speak with a doctor in the hopes to settle the score

You must take these pills to mask the pain you feel
Now you're a hamster on the pharmaceutical wheel

If those don't work than we have another one you can try
Side effects include: headaches, nausea, anxiety, and possible thoughts of suicide?

All though there are those who can't survive without such pills
Can it not be defeated by healing oneself with strength and free will?

Facing demons and self reflection is a critical must to pinpoint the source
in finding oneself again, your light, your strength, your goal
…to stay the course
