Sitting here Learn to love Acceptance feeling bound Learn to see Is it real wondering This I've done Reaching out will I be found No therapy Hope to feel Thoughts amuck Defeat depression Soon to know Racking my brain Start anew What is there Mind dazed Need companions Get control Burning pain Needing you Of my fear I try to see My only outlet Holding tight Am I blind This black pen Lean on you Struggling The ink speaks Look to family Break these binds It comes from within What to do Lift my head I hope you hear Trust them Clear my mind Open mind Let them help Focus Looking ahead Freeing me It is time Come from behind Of myself Grinning Home Sitting here See life I wish to be No longer bound Struggle ends Yes I fear Now I see No more strife. Society. I am found.
