There will be moments when it seems hopeless
Exhaustion has seeped in to the core
You have done all that you think you could,
And then also some more.
There is no rock bottom,
Falling through a never ending hell,
Light seems a distant dream,
You are too demoralized to care.
Right when it seems like giving up,
Or giving in,
Is the easiest thing to do:
Shake yourself this once more, rise anew.
For every drowning man,
A life line is thrown.
But reaching for it with his dying breath,
Is his job alone.
Why bother, why try,
When insanity seems more sane?
Because you were born to live.
To rise, again and again.
No matter how tough these times,
Or deep the darkness of the night,
Beyond these waves of despair,
There is a peace. There is always light.
