Can't you hear my scream!?
The pounding of my heart -
the grinding of my teeth!?
My Anixiety it's eating me!
I can't stand straight as depression weighs me down,
and i can't help but be afraid of everything.
Can't you understand what this is like!?
I found myself the past two days,
collapsed on the ground sobbing.
Why, why am I so afraid,
I try to ask,
but I cannot respond,
Because anxiety is in control,
Depression second in command,
they rule hand in hand.
And I look around,
for someone like me,
but feel so alone,
enclosed in my room.
The voices taunting,
that i'll never be good enough - skinny enough - pretty enough.
I have to take a stand!
And so do you -
so please take my hand!
I don't have to be alone!
I know there are others out there like me,
who need help,
who aspire to be happy!
And I have to lift up my head, and straighten my back -
and scream at my monsters
to let me back up!
And I will strive to help those like me -
So remember you're not alone,
even when the monsters tell you that you are.
even when you are too weak to stand!
and walk away with me hand in hand.
