Sam's Somewhat Somber Short Sonnet (3)

How does one continue to live everyday staying energetic

Keeping motivated while hating what you’ve become

The person in the mirror is no longer your aesthetic

All this suffering has left you numb


Before, isolation was not meet with demonic whispers

From people who you thought were your kin

Left with plentiful scars and terrible blisters

Those memories, ending, as soon as they begin


Knowing you don't want these feelings to last forever

But we all know that the actions were all your own

You caused the dominos to fall, concluding your endeavor

Regretting every day, especially the day you were born


Now you live each days trying to pick up small pieces

Of simply joys before of the thought of death increases
