You’ll Make It,I know You Will

You’ll make it, I know you will,

You’ve come too far and now is not the time.

If only you stopped and thought about it all

The walls you’ve climbed, all the troubles crossed

All the failures faced, all the little victories

Look into the eyes of those beside you

The woman at the table

The man in the street

It’s there, deep-set perhaps – but there all the same,

The very same terror as you

A flicker of recognition in both your eyes and then you move on

So if they can live in temporary quiet desperation

Then so can you

And one day soon you’ll make it across

To where you can start again

I know you will

You’ve come too far, to stop.

Depression is a liar. It will tell you that you are worthless, that no one cares, that you are better off dead. None of what it tells you has any basis in the truth. None. Many of the ideas in your head are completely baseless and false. I implore you to never take any kind of extreme action without talking with someone else first, as hard as those words may be for you to say. You will shake off this beast of depression and will look back someday and be shocked that you listened to the pleas of this raging, ruthless liar. Do not be afraid to talk back when the beast whispers in your ear. You may not feel it right now, but you are so much stronger than your depression.”
