You're a priceless treasure

Anxiety and depression have spiraled out of control Life's punches have certainly taken their toll Another bump in the road seems more like a knoll Defeated you feel like digging yourself a giant sized hole Scattered like confetti are thoughts stuck within your fish bowl You feel charred like gray black charcoal Vicious mudslide cycling on a downhill roll Weary have grown your heart mind and soul Lost in a whirlwind life's purpose seems out of reach high on a pole One lemon after the next you fear you'll never reach your goal Don't wallow and hang your head in despair Despite how you feel you're not broken beyond repair Life can often be overwhelming and too much to bare You're not alone we've all made a pitstop there Love and support don't cost a thing when you fall short I've got plenty on reserve to spare Life can most certainly be furthest from fair We all occasionally get snagged up in a snare We all carry deep-seeded scars with more than our flesh that did tear Remember you're a priceless treasure that gives life meaning, there's always someone who cares We'll blend your issues with mine squashing life's bitter lemons into sweet lemonade to share

It is a rocky road sometimes and we sometimes feel things are against us. But we never give up.
