Rise and Fall

up from the walls of jail
a prisoner in my own hell
I Rose

failing health for so many years
imprisoned by my doubts and fears
I Rose

shackled by deep depression
I knew I must keep pressing
I Rose

back to health and my life
rid myself of all the strife
I Rise

now for you I do my very best
I guess I just wasn't up for the test
I Fall

all I do for you is not enough
why do you have to be so tough
I Fall

critisizing all I do
is nothing good enough for you
I Fall

rising up from the ashes
I will gracefully take your lashes
on the mend

    It must be hard to deal with such deep depression and still maintain hope that you "will rise again." Keep the faith, TuLisha! I hope it all works out for you. Love, Carolyn
