"I write to give myself strength. I write to be the characters that I am not. I write to explore all the things I'm afraid of." - Joss Whedon


All the struggling
All the battles
I blow out the candles
One for every year I beat it all
I beat the depression
I beat the anxiety
I beat the self-injury
Blow out a candle for my friends
Blow out a candle for my family
Blow out a candle for my accomplishments
Blow out a candle for making it another year
And the very last candle
I blow it out for the hope of next year
19 candles for 19 years
All of them worth the fight
