Shall you change, or remain true to yourself?

The pulse of Earth

Beating in time

Pushes us forth

forcing us to climb

Destruction of self

is sometimes the only way

that we have at hand

to make it through the day

But we get to choose

who we will become

evil or good selves

lest we succumb

But while we can change

we may have no desire

and then we are trapped

bogged down in our own mire

Malleable is the mind

but the heart is not

emotions run deep

but ignored they rot

Little can be done

for a black heart

it’s already destroyed

with little to impart

So close yourself away

at your own peril

the silence eats at the soul

and drains thy marrow

Update – Newest novel reviewed, at least several pages. Small changed needed, but still looking good. I hope to have an editor over later today.

“If you know someone who’s depressed, please resolve never to ask them why. Depression isn’t a straightforward response to a bad situation; depression just is, like the weather.

Try to understand the blackness, lethargy, hopelessness, and loneliness they’re going through. Be there for them when they come through the other side. It’s hard to be a friend to someone who’s depressed, but it is one of the kindest, noblest, and best things you will ever do.”
― Stephen Fry
