The battles we all fight

We battle our whole lives

Never stopping

Never getting even a second to relax

Some of us win our battles

Some of us don’t

Some people’s battles are easy

Others fight to the death

Everyone’s battle is a struggle

No matter how strong they are

And the only way to win these battles

Is to get stronger

   Some of us need help getting stronger

But it’s hard for us to open up

Others are just tired of fighting

Tired of living through hell

So we give up.

We welcome death with open arms

Many see death as a punishment

But we see it as an escape

But when we leave

We realize it was never like that at all.

It was a mistake

And we carry that regret with us forever

No escape

There is no escape

From this cruel reality
