Life took his leave
Optimism stabbed me in the back
Perseverance didn't want to stay
and Pride just seemed lost.

all that was once whole
now laid in bits and pieces
damaged and near impossible to fix

dreams that were once within reach
now seemed so distant
and Laughter became an infrequent guest

this is the story of how everything fell apart
and this is also the beginning
where I begin to fight back.
