Depression

When you feel so down and low

 

And you can't seem to reach the boat

 

That carries you to the other side of the chasm

 

When you haven't a Savior near

 

Cause you've pushed them away in fear

 

And the demons won't stop whispering in your ear

 

You are all alone

 

You are never going to make it

 

Useless

 

Stupid

 

Helpless

 

They won't go away

 

And you are so close to letting it all go

 

Because fighting seems to give no results

 

You want the blade over your skin

 

You want to let the pain out that you feel within

 

And you know it's just all wrong

 

It hurts so bad

 

Cause you don't know how to fix it

 

How to want to fix it

 

You swore years ago that you would never give up

 

And thinking this gives you just a tiny bit of hope

 

But there is a really long road ahead

 

And you're afraid you may not make it

 

But never give up

 

Hold onto that promise you made

 

Cause you can trust yourself

 

Try and stay strong
