A depressing state

depessed state

A depressing state

As I turned 17 my youth just past
a realisation that it was all too fast.

Began it did, a moment of cast
in the memory of a mortal so vast.

A job,
girls
and the letting of a house.

I soon took head when I had to pay for all
I didn’t realise the pain, which would sadden me to fall.

Is it really worth it?
Paying 50% to this unknown.

The support continues
that is was they need
as they can’t create their own means.

Are these rules of society really set at dim?
I’m fighting for a top job now as more responsibility wades in.

Children,
A mortgage,
and a car that never wins.

I can see myself at 60 looking back in sin
could I have done more or was I just too grim?

Following the rulebook to which I see no success
maybe its time to appear from behind this twisted mess.

I can hear the wind
I can feel the sun

All that’s stopping us

is a rise

A following

and a simple must.
