depression takes up 65% of my life

suicidal ideation and the constant irritation 

theres sticky red thats  running down the edge of my knife

i have internal condescension and external captivation

anxiety takes up  35% of my life

its like my heads exploding body overloading

pills and pain but nothing works

i find that here and there i am corroding 

but then theres 5% percent of hope that i cling to in life

its all the little joys of living

laughing, joking, teasing, loving

playing, lisening and giving

becuse with hope the light is coming.
