My Life Unraveled

Dug myself in deep
Deep into this pit
I try to climb upwards
Towards the inviting light
Waiting at the top with open arms
But I fall
Darkness surrounds me
Threatening to pull me under
But I keep reaching for the light
Trying to make a little progress
Weeks have passed
And I'm still at the bottom
Still trying, still fighting to reach the surface
Before I'm stuck here for good
Each day shows small progress
Small steps in the right direction
But the distance is still great
And my fate as of late is unknown

This poem is about: 
Me
