They Will Always Sing

We all freeze in winter,
The snow will melt in spring,
The birds come back in summer,
And they will always sing.

But someday you may not hear.
Some days you might want the birds to stop
Because you wake up and you get the feeling
That makes your heart drop.

You can’t move,
You’re trapped
Something in your mind
Just

Snapped.

But we still freeze in winter,
We are thawed come spring
The birds still fly back in summer,
But you don’t sing.

And you know you can,
But it’s too hard.
You’re voice is too heavy
And your heart is charred.

But we still freeze in winter,
We are thawed come spring,
The birds still fly back in summer,
But you don’t even want to sing.

You’ve given up on trying
You decide what’s the point
Your blood is replaced is alcohol
And your breath comes out of joints

But we still freeze in winter,
We are thawed come spring,
The birds still fly back in summer,
But you can’t sing.

Your voice is gone,
But you can get it back.
All you need to do

Is plan your attack.
You stay warm in winter,
And you laugh and run in spring,
And when the birds fly back in summer
It won’t be hard for you to sing

I wrote this poem because I often keep to myself when I'm going through a rough time, and I wanted to write what it could feel like for others going through it.
