Underestimated

There are voices telling you that
Laying in bed and crying all day is normal.
You're just an "average teenager."
It's just hormones.

That's just an underestimation. 

There are voices telling you that
You are not capable and you cannot beat this.
You're just an "average teenager."
It's just a hopeless cause.

That's just an underestimation.

You are fighting demons and you're winning.
To say the fight will be easy
Would be an underestimation
Of the trials and tribulations you've endured.

You are fighting demons and you're winning.
To say you're a goner
Would be an underestimation
Of the power and value you hold inside.
