The Strength Prevails

Permanent scars penetrate the soul

As eyes stare into the overcast world outside these wretched walls

Screams build up inside the mind but never enough to break through the armored body

A sea of depression is on the horizon, becoming clearer with each waking moment

Feet dangle off the rugged cliffs while calls of the wild howl from deep in the forest

Tortured feelings beaten down by words that strike the heart

Eventually numbness settles in to comfort the aching soul

Through it all, strength prevails

Through the thoughts crashing like brutal waves against the rocky shore

Masking the depression stricken tears sure enough becomes second nature
