'24's At The Front Door

I wanna erase the pain revolving around my cerebellum  
Reflecting a time of peace like an antebellum  
The serum, unlike red rum, is my creativity  
Waving the white flag when writing poetry  
 
Another year meets history as we're approaching 2024
Expeditiously escorting 2023 right outta the back door  
I for sure don't want anymore of what '23 had to offer  
Devising a plan for how I can add dollars to my coffer  
 
I want my daughter and I to reestablish our bond
A bond that's floated away like lily pads in a pond
Want my marriage to rest upon a solid foundation  
In need of a resurrection of love and far less frustration  

Want my depression to be casted into the pits of HELL
Providing an elevation from the situations of which I fell
Don't want to feel this despair so I declare war in '24
If it brings anymore drama to my ailing mental core
