She sits listening to the voices in her head
They keep telling her they want her dead
She drifts in and out of reality
Often times dreaming of her fatality
She keeps pleading with them to let her be
Just for a day to just feel free
She does everything that she can
To make herself feel like herself again
Deep breathing, meditation not to mention the medications
Pill, swallow, she tries not to feel so hollow
Pill after pill, day after day
Why does it feel like nothing has changed?
Pacing around is it this time again?
Try to sleep so she counts sheep
But sheep can't distract how she's in too deep
Deep within her endless mind
She remains to find
That one reason to keep her from leaving
She shuts her eyes as she tries not to cry
But she's losing her drive to try
For she knows that when she awakes
Nothing will have changed
