Dear Depression


Dear depression:

The one inside who causes second guessin
You make me always ask unanswered questions
I've tried to learn this life from all your lessons
But instead all the stress made me doubt my blessins
Awake at 8 hope for the best but feel the tension
Need an escape just wana rest with best intentions
Feelin erased like I need space and no attention
Out of place complete wastes of all my seconds
And the meds leave us less but are so called weapons
Detest being depressed at my treatment sessions
Always dressed to impress it's a misconception
So we regress to progress just to change direction
Time to elect and accept you can beat this sentence
On to the next no regrets cause it's time to end this
