Down, down further I go, sinking into the abyss,
What can I do? Where should I go? Have I been amiss?
I try to see above the tide, looking for the light,
But all I see is darkness there, no shining beam in sight.
My soul it feels so empty now, with nothing there but hope,
But now it too withers and burns as my heart it tries to grope.
The strain within my body cries “please let me out!”
I ignore the pleas and icy freeze and block out the distant shout.
All around me everywhere I observe the baby cry,
Do these people know how much I wish I could just lie?
Pretend it’s happening as well to me, I’m going to be a mother!
To torment my mind in such a way just brings pain to so many others.
And so the battle begins again, lets line up the drugs and smile,
And try to forget the constant ache that makes it all so vile.
The hands of fate will make a choice, do we get our wish or not?
And when all is said and done again, we’ll have given it our best shot.
