The Descent

He could feel himself
Slipping lower
On a downward slide
Ready to give up
No longer caring
But he hated
Feeling that way
I was not like him
To feel like giving up
So he began to write
Knowing that he had
Too much to live for
The love of his wife
And his love
Of writing poetry
Was enough
To end his descent
