If you’ve made it this far,
You’ve made it this far
It’s not easy
I’m sure there were times
Maybe you wanted out
to give up to give in to say it’s not worth it
I’m better off gone
but you’re not gone, you’re here
Thank God for you!
You are wonderful!
There’s no time like the present
Start making a difference
You are the pebble in the pond the endless ripple
Go out and touch the lives of many
who will benefit from your light
Expel the darkness
It’s a new day
Live it to the full
If there is ever a metaphorical bus of self-deprecation,
I have an awful tendency of throwing myself under it.
Some sick part of my brain calls it humility
but the truth is, if this were an actual bus,
it would be considered suicide.
Depression is definitely in the family,
I’m well familiar with it,
So I know I have tendency to dumpster dive
right into danger’s way-
not out of heroism, but just cuz
my brain is stupid.
I want to be a hero, a true hero.
I suppose the first step is to save myself,
so then I can be here tomorrow to save others.
To all friends who feel like giving up,
I exhort you to keep going.
There is a light, right over the ridge.
I know you are exhausted
I know you are in pain,
but push ever onward
for victory is nigh.
