Depression is like a war, you either win, or die trying.

I was told I was strong
Strong enough to break bricks
And then I broke my body breaking that last brick
I was told I could climb higher then the clouds
And then I fell and crashed, crashed hard
I was told I could out run lions
And then one day I couldn't run any longer
I was told I was unbreakable, I was told I was powerful, they told me I could do anything
I told them I was weak, weak enough to scar every limb on my body
I told them I was powerless, Enough to surrender to life itself
I told them I was to tired, tired enough to drop to my knees without a thought to get back up

"To these the past hath its phantoms,
More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"
