The world became so dark

I tried to function

Tried to keep my head above water,

But when I started to drown

I knew that I needed to reach out for help

I thought I could do it alone

Tried to make it in my own way

But then I remembered that I didn’t know how to swim

Oh the things I should have learned when I was younger

I know they still wouldn’t have helped me now

So I swallowed my pride

Put my head down and apologized

Opened my hands to accept the meds

Promised to take them as prescribed

Now I’m back to being the person

The person unlike who I used to be

I’m back to being the person

Completely unrecognizable to me
