Dear Serotonin,

It's been many years since I've seen you last
Since you up and left me in the past
From then I've never been the same
And your absence from me is my shame

When you first left, I was a wreck
Life was a thorn in my side and a pain in my neck
On the verge of destruction and utter collapse
On a broken record of constant relapse

I didn't give up, and I sought help
Heading to recovery; a push, a pull, a skelp
I fought through and I was strong
And I'm still fighting this and pushing it along

I'm going through my days without drugs or medication
Getting by day-by-day holding onto motivation
All those drugs would make you come back worse
I am beating what you've done to me; undoing this whole curse

I could blame you, blame myself, or could just blame genetics
But making up any excuse just makes me look pathetic
I accept who I am and where I'm at in life
I will continue to fight you; nail and tooth and knife

No matter what you do to me, I will never go away
I can feel myself getting stronger with every passing day
You have finally met your match, the battle has begun
I will end this everlasting war, in my name it shall be won

                                                          Yours Truly,
                                                               Dylan Foss
