Yeah. Sometimes I'm not sure which makes me more depressed. Hearing this stuff defines your life forever (which leaves no room for hope) or hearing this stuff doesn't have to define your entire life (which makes me a failure, because in so many ways it has).
Like a spent gladiator
crawling in the colosseum dust
who can count on his remaining limbs
all the people he can trust.
Like the one who stands behind him
cheering him on
Estatic when he stands defiant,
wild with abandon when he's gone
just stay alive.
do whatever you need to.
you are worth it.
