How do you beat that sadness
That Is giving you so much pain
How do you beat that madness 
That is making you insane

How do you break through
When nothing is there but air
How do you come to
If you are stuck in dream land and can no longer care

You try to live and you fall into the role 
You believe you are back
Until you head burns with thoughts like coal
The pain has returned and is ready to attack

Will you let it encase you
Or will you beat it out
Can you stay true
When it try's to stab you all about

You try not to dwell 
You try not to care
But you already fell
And are far to aware

How can you ask for help
When you are to afraid to speak
Let out a yelp
Go out and seek

Rhyming is much harder than people give you credit for, and you do a splendid job. I'm really impressed with this piece. I had to read it twice!
