Despair is a desperate denial to cope
It’s the fundamental essence of losing hope

Despair’s process begins with something aspired
The breeding ground of being inspired

You believe in a dream with no limitation
And, your heart is filled with anticipation

Something happens, and it all falls through
So, your sunken heart knows not what to do

Your total being comes under suspicion
And, out the window goes all you ambition

Your reflection in the mirror shows nothing at all
And, your self-esteem begins to drastically fall

All of the sudden, you just don’t care
And, this, you see, is called despair
