Will I Ever Live it Down?

Feeling like you’re teetering

On the edge of death

In a living purgatory all your own.

Afraid of everything and yourself

Stuck in perpetual drowning:

Can make you vicious.

Eager to survive,

As you die trying.

I scratched at anything solid

To pull free of mental illness.

Having succeeded,

And made amens

My demon no longer haunt me.

But the resentment of supporters

Stings at random.

I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
