Plunge Into Darkness

Say good-bye to your negative thoughts
Stop giving them space to breathe
Don’t take the plunge into darkness

Illusions are powerful, especially when they’re sad
Giving in increases your stress
They only wound when you lose your focus
Stop living in a state of duress

Deep inside you know they’re lies
Deceptions dressed up as “proof”
They burrow deep inside your mind
It’s no wonder you act aloof

You’re drowning in shame, hiding your pain
Suffering for no reason at all
Take the first step to reverse your malaise
Refuse to take the fall
