"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own, and you know what you know. And you are the one who'll decide where you'll go." -Dr. Seuss

I’ve let you down
I understand
That what I did
Was of a selfish man.

It wasn’t right
I now see
That what I did hurt you
Although it made me feel free.

I can’t say I won’t
Do it again
But please don’t be mad at me
Can’t you see? All I need is a friend.

You were always there
When I needed you most
So please don’t leave me now
I’m a few pills away from being a ghost.
