For a Stranger...

Drowned by Tim Minchin
Have your friends drifted away?
Were you close to them?
Did they leave when you started to fall?
Did they judge when you couldn't get back up?
Did they even try to hear you out?
Has your family changed the way they treat you?
Did they start to turn away?
Did they smile and say you'll be Ok?
Did they stay when you broke?
What was there excuse for leaving?
Did you find yourself lost?
Did you wonder what was happening to you?
Did you panic?
Did you cry?
It's been years right?
Did you become numb inside?
Did your thoughts turn against you?
Did you start to hate yourself?
Did you claw your way through pain ever day?
Did the pain win?
Did you stop counting the tears?
Did you try the pills they gave you?
Did they work?
Something feels wrong right?
Searching and searching for happiness...
Any fix will do...
Did you try even though you were weak?
Did you smile when you couldn't?
The days are lonely...
To many questions with no answers...
Did you stop asking questions?
Did you start to except your pain?
The anxiety always win's...right?
Crushing you slowly...
Feels like dying...
Did you keep fighting when you knew you lost?
Did you keep carrying the weight on your shoulders?
Did you pretend to be fine so people can except you?
Did they even except you then?
Does the past always enter your thoughts?
All the good memories are swept away by so much bad memories...
Did you lose faith that there's good people?
Did you feel like one of the good ones?
Did you feel like you were going crazy?
Did you feel like everyone was mean?
Did you feel like everyone was a liar?
Did you feel like maybe your a victim?
Did you feel like your normal and everyone else is Crazy?
Did you feel like the way you feel is normal in world like this?
Do you wonder why things never change?
Do you wonder how long this will last?
Do you get angry?
Do you become something your not?
The depression is always there to keep you down...
Nothing ever lets up...
There's only so much a human being can take...
Do you ask why me?
Do you get angry at those who take advantage of how good they have it?
Do you feel as if you learned from the pain?
Do your dreams haunt you?
Do you give up because the mountain is just to tall?
Is there something holding you back?
Does it feel like your in cage?
Does it feel like one big cruel joke?
Does it feel claustrophobic even though no one is around?
sleeping to much or not enough...
Eating to much or not enough...
Do you feel there's never a middle?
And through out all the bad in your life...
All the bullsh*t...
Do you feel thankful you have one more day to try and beat your problems?
One more day to prove you can make it?
One more day to overcome...
One more day to learn...
One more day to grow...
and that some day when you least expect it...
Those tears you lost count of...
Will float you to the top of the surface...
That faith and effort means something...
If you feel this way then I say your not alone...
With every struggle is a chance to become stronger...
and the beauty of your victories are meant for you and only you...
that some day when you can enjoy the breeze against your face...
stand and smile...
You will have accomplished more then anyone...
and that's true appreciation.
but never give up!
Because even if you don't make it...
You never died.
