Self Destruction is Not the Answer

It's happening all around you,
hopelessness sneaks its way into your home,
breaks down your door
and leaves you in the dark,
depressed, defeated, let down,
to fend for yourself.

You're in the position to tell hopelessness
to hold on for a minute
while you take the time to remember how
fortunate, fulfilled, and fit
you are to fend for yourself despite 
 being alone.
