perhaps i grieve my youth
something i lost
a long time ago
when i had to survive
alone
in a grown up world

perhaps i grieve my innocence
something i lost
when i found out
how much of a
wreck
this country is

perhaps i grieve my sanity
which i would give anything
to have back
but i lost it to
depression
and i cannot get it back
ha vent piece time. my mental health hasn't been the greatest lately so yeah.

    Ah, that first stanza! How rhythmic, and not simply pulling at heartings, but cutting mine straight out. I always enjoy reading what you've composed, keep writing!
