Drowning: A Life in Despair

I'm spiralling downward
no end in sight
I've tried to stay up
tried with all my might

Have to keep my head above water
have to stay afloat
But I just keep sinking
I'm drowning in a moat

Fight or flight takes over
I'm pushing upward
Growing more tired by the second
can't go down like a coward

What's that up ahead
am I reaching the surface
No it was just a mirage
I have served my purpose
