I don't recognize this reflection that stares back at me,
It's completely different from what it used to be.
I can't say I'm happy with what I find,
Staring right back into my eyes.

But if I was never happy with the person I used to be familiar with,
Then my only hope is that one day I'll be content
With the person I find in the mirror.

This darkness comes in suddenly, feeding off me when I am weak,
The quiet whisper convincing me it's what I need to escape,
I'm so lost inside of my own head, this nightmare never seems to end.

Before you know it, all you will have are blurry memories of the person you used to be.
You will push away everyone that tried to reach out;
When lacking a persistent thought process, no opinion will remain.

I'm afraid of what's to come, I just pray that I'm not too far gone.
There will be a day when this all changes:
Complete and utter depletion of the most valuable resource.
Once we lose ourselves, we lose everything.
This unfamiliar reflection stares back at me into my eyes.
