Wrapped up and weighted down, always a dark storm coming down, feeling trapped, im going insane, when will I be the better me a gain
To far gone, I feel this way, so much dark, so much pain, im sinking down low and I can't escape
Somebody help push this heavy storm away, I need you now, I need you today, without these pills im afraid to say, that eventually I will be no more to see,
So dark weighted storm go away, so I can be the better me again someday.

    I've recently written about the struggles of being a man and what life presents to us as men. This is a very telling and poignant piece, Larry. I also see that you live in the beautiful state of Washington. I, myself, lived in Tacoma and Auburn for three years in the 80s. I'm an east coast brother myself, but absolutely loved Washington. Thank you for sharing your story my friend. See you up on Strong Street.
