Despondency

You may withdraw yourself from others Become quiescent or lackadaisical Disrupt sleep or appetite alter Feel sluggish or delirious When the echoes of your parents'altercations Rack up your eggshell mind When you avoid people whose company You've typically rejoiced relishing Yet you remain part of the quotidian process That regaling you would your emotions trivialize The world should revere your right To confront a loss thouroughly Convalesce from their turgid prosperity Immerse your weighty dejections Schedule some constructive episodes I can but accolade your approach To coin a new gist of aliveness Absorb and merriment apprize Amend lamenting into cleansing Strike a joke or be sarcastic Amass and boast your high-pitched impetus And above all your insights vitalize Extoll your bewitching sorcery And perceive a world better to be.
