Prompt Hour Seven–a non cliché angst

My Monkey

My Monkey

I once moped my way
through black-clad days,
trudging, head down,
hair in my face,
contemplating why I hated me
in flowery, overblown prose.

The angst monster rode my back,
teen version of a drug monkey.
Feeling downtrodden was my drug of choice.
