How much longer can this go on?
How much more do I have to take?
One foot in front the other
with never a pause or break.
Relentlessly this pain does grind
I'm weary to the core
I no longer have the strength
to battle one day more.
I know you'd say to not give up
that I should keep on trying
But it's so hard to carry on
when inside you're slowly dying.
So let me just throw in the towel
and for one last time I'll weep
then let my cares just drift away
while I forever sleep.
Emote Contest. Depression.
