    It’s a new day,

    The sun is shining bright

    But in my heart, the dread remains

    I am empty and in pain.

     

    Money’s gone, wasted down the drain

    Kept chasing losses with no gain

    But I could not help myself to refrain

     

    So I’m starting anew

    No more will I go askew

    No more will I allow money to define me

    I am me, I am kind, with blessings to see

     

    I will focus on what I have

    Live in the present and learn to save

    Forsake illusions of grandeur

    So afar off and not near

     

    I will accept the now and wait for the morrow

    Put the losses behind me without any sorrow

    I will live life to the full

    Without a penny to ridicule

    For the best things in life ARE free

    But it’s in the waiting that torments me !

    Your fourth line of the 3rd stanza resonated with me – “I am me, I am kind”
    I find that’s how I feel. I have done a terrible, irresponsible thing but that is not how I think of myself. I am a kind person, I think of others before myself, I feel others’ pain and can hardly deal with it.
    we will arise from this. I believe in you and me
