Favorite Quote:
"In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on." -Robert Frost

She’s not alone

Demons fill her head

All of them whispering

You’re better off dead

She tries to run

But they’re stuck in her mind

She get’s ahead

Only to fall behind

Nobody likes you

And they never will

Their voices taunt her

She manages to hold still

She tells herself

Its okay, they’re not real

But the voices don’t leave her

And they never will

The unrelenting words

And the undermining pain

They finally convince her

There’s nothing to gain

Despite her own knowledge

They have taken her mind

They’ve hid it in lies

For no one to find

So she finds herself standing

On the edge of the bridge

She tries to stop

But peers over the ridge

She tries to move back

But takes a step forward still

All that she’s doing

Is against her own will

As she leans over the edge

She’s reminded of sins

She plunges towards death

Because the mind always wins
