An ally against the monster
That is Depression.
To show that loneliness is defeatable,
And although sadness is all-consuming,
She won't be consumed by it alone,
Because the ones she loves are right beside her.
Knowing that an icy glass of water
And "Everything is going to be okay,"
Is the best remedy for her Anxiety.
Providing a long-sought-after cure
For her to heal, to grow, to understand
That defeating her monsters is attainable.
Loving for better or for worse,
Depression or no depression,
Anxiety or no anxiety
Helping her feel victorious,
Helping her feel whole
For the first time.
