Struggle (an acrostic emotional adventure)

So many troubles were raining down on her

That she was soon soaked to her soul with all the consequences

Rising depression threatened to drown her as she stood there

Unless she figured out how to swim through the morass of her life

Giving up was always an option

Going under and never resurfacing again

Life would just go on for those around her

Except she knew that was a lie, so she began to tread water and searched for the safety of shore

Blank (an acrostic poem)

Bashing on the keyboard, programming robot liebehaviors

Living the lie that it will actually work this time

As you change random things in the deluded hope it will fix the problem

Never really believing you will really make things better

Killing all your hope as your mind goes…
