a way to explore thoughts, usually first thing in the morning.

my big dreams
shine brightly
in my mind, yet
the smallest obstacle
is enough
to bring darkness,
and then i give up.
anger & despair
kick the ass
of hopefulness
every time.
if i were
an anime hero,
i’d clench my fists
and swear
to become stronger,
and then i’d
miraculously
power-up another level
and stomp my nemesis
while triumphant music
sang my praises.
i’m a human,
however;
i’ll work quietly
with my therapist
and understand
there is no
smashing victory,
just the possibility
that today
is another chance
not to give in
to the darkness
despite myself.
