Outlook: Bleak

I have risen from the hellfire
I have no more fear of death
I accept no higher authority
Than the counsel of kith and kin
I refute all forms of greed
Hypocrisy and prejudice
I am human
I am human
I teeter on the edge of the abyss

Shit (After Iggy)

It was in the spring of my fiftieth year
That I admitted I had a problem
I was careening through the wilderness of my mind, alone,
Clutching the pillow on which my wife would normally lay her head
I sensed that some of my friends were drifting away
As if I’d begun to stink of fish
I knew that I needed to take better care of myself
If I was never to face the only thing that terrified me –
Letting down my kids
Above all, I promised that I’d never beat myself up again –
Not over anything
