How Do I Fire Myself?

It’s this
It’s that
It’s another thing
The cause of all the sadness
The cause of the gaping hole
Names it has
Solutions not
Pop this pill
To wipe out feelings
Pop this one
To try fix something else
I haven’t yet been approached
To try any funny brain gadgets
But it’s clearly a matter of time
Talked until I’m blue in the face
And done it all over again
Helps only for a little while
Then the demons come crawling back
Never too far to ooze their influence
Into the toxic energy they create
If only I could layoff the sad squad
The doomers and the gloomers
The ones that keep telling me
That I’m most certainly not good enough
But how exactly would that work
How do I go about firing myself?
