I remember when life was normal…

When I wasn’t sick
When I had a future so bright
When I loved my job
When I didn’t cry to sleep each night

When I didn’t wake up to a handful of pills
And go to sleep with another
When I had friends who cared
When I was still loved by my father

When going out was fun
When I chose who, when and where
When my highs were high
And I just remained there

When I wasn’t trying to kill myself
By drowning in this self-pity
