Entry 669

A curse without convenient cure.
 
The most severe symptom 
Convinces the afflicted 
They are not worthy. 

Unworthy of treatment. 
Unwilling to ask for attention.
Unable to pursue 
Methods of redemption, 
For many reasons.

Purged of pride, 
Lethargy enters the body.

Death becomes an obsession;
 
Sleep is an easier escape.

Nightmares are welcomed;
More real than any dream.

The future is their greatest fear.

Past experience teaches them 
Nothing will improve.
They are not strong enough 
To change course.

All attempts end 
When they see the first sign of 
Improvement.
