I have an addictive personality.
Addictive behavior took over me.
Days spent in hospitals,
Therapy, doctors, experts.
Diagnosis? Depression.
Weeks past and I’m good now.
Oh wait, anxiety kicking back in.
More weeks past and I’m actually good now.
I’ve been saved.
Kind of.

I still have an addictive personality.
Colorguard is my other addiction.
Can’t just casually like it,
I obsess over it.
Challenges every way I look.
I’m used to them already.
But this is the good kind.
From itty bitty freshman
To senior captain.
Guard saves me,
Thus far.

My addictive personality just doesn’t end.
Empathy is another addiction.
People relate to me,
I relate to people.
I want to help others,
As others have helped me.
People saved me,
Now it’s my turn to save people.
