It’s a dark rainy day, and I want to say I am brighter then YOU, I am stronger than YOU.
And I will not let YOU defeat me.
In the time of darkness, I’ve learned where to turn, whether it is a painful or good feeling,
YOU are nothing but evil and YOU tear people apart slowly to the point they no longer find light.
When falling to dark, YOU take us away from our families, YOU hide us in an isolated box,
YOU cause harm to our body’s, YOU are no good for are souls, now the rain is over.
I’ve ruined your soul.
Depression YOU no longer live, l’ve killed all that sadness.
But remember one thing.
Don’t let depression shame the beauty that live within YOU.
