Survive

Battling with Depression

The Key to Happiness

She's fighting the demons inside her head.

She can't let them win.

She can't let them wound her again.

To the warzone, she will go

and be a survivor in her war.

Even if she goes into battle alone.

Memories from her past,

the demons telling her she can't.

Reminding her they're all she has.

Telling her she's nothing.

Noticing what she's becoming.

Seeing that she's falling.

She begins fighting.

Yielding her weapon.

Reaching for the key,

while realizing who she wants to be.

She begins to fight her war safely.

Looking at her final razorblade,

she doesn't even hesitate

to throw it away.
