All it takes is one bad day to reduce the sanest man alive to lunacy. That's how far the world is from where I'm at. One bad day.- Alan Moore's "The Killing Joke"

I Killed Myself In That Lake,
The one of Crystal Blue waters,
Sandy banks and muddy floors.

I let my Body drift all the way down,
The water held me,
She embraced me as if I was her child.

I let my lungs burn and ache,
The mud entered them coated them,
Slime joined in and took away the pain.

I killed Myself In that Lake,
The demon within me died there long ago,
She of my angel side held her down long enough.

I Killed myself in that Lake,
The person I was before is drowning,
Standing on the sandy banks I let her drown.

This was a horrible dream. I had this dream for a month straight. By the time it stopped, I realized that I had changed. That old habits died and I grew up. I became a better person.
