Hope Springs Eternal.

I know I’ll always,
Come alive,
After I fall,
Into a dive.

I know the sun,
Will rise again,
After I’ve gone into,
A dark refrain.

I write to myself,
Some notes of this,
Because I forget,
I’m always remiss.

To think I can,
Be happy again.
To think I’m not,
Really going insane.

When I’m OK,
I think I can never,
Fall again,
My smile to sever.

Yet when I’m down,
I feel I will never,
Be happy again,
Or even clever.

To use my brain,
To see anew,
That it's just my mind,
That’s in a stew.

The world is the same,
Night turns to day.
It’s only me,
Who’s lost his way.

It's just my mind,
That has become unkind.
It’s those chemicals again,
I’ll have to find...

Not from the drugs,
That have never worked.
Just from my spirit,
That pain has usurped.

Keep that dawn in mind,
It will return again.
Put up the photos,
In a lovey frame.

Work to move,
To get up and connect.
Choose a sunshine day,
Then press select.

Vision what you want to see,
Feel what you want to find.
Help to choose the happy way,
And support and grow your mind.

I know I’ll always,
Come alive,
After I fall,
Into a dive.

I know the sun,
Will rise again,
After I’ve gone into,
A dark refrain.

Do not despair,
You’ve found another day.
Now you can take a step,
Move closer to a way.

That brings a smile,
That makes you feel safe,
That brings you hope,
That doesn’t chafe.

Get up and move,
Take that shower.
Step forward,
Into a new hour.
