I have charted life’s darkest paths,
And slain depression’s beasts.
I have faced the face of sorrow,
From across the table of Satan’s feasts.
I have walked the world with company,
And have faced the same roads alone.
I have slept on un-comfy beds,
Between the walls of home.
I was banished from the joy of day,
With not a single place to go.
Accompanied by my constant companion,
The strength of my own shadow.
I have tussled with my thoughts,
And have submitted to the stress.
But I’m back to regain my throne,
Of the land of happiness.
