Every day is a new battle against the same foe,
But the enemy fights back with psychological blows.
It creeps up on you in your most vulnerable state,
Especially when there’s no one around who can relate.
I know you just feel like letting go
Everything is way too heavy
Nobody is ever ready to be ready
And I know you’ve been stressing
It’s okay cause your blessing’s on the way
Don’t you worry about what they say
They can’t break you down
keep putting one foot in front of the other,
And taking your life day by day…
There’s a brighter tomorrow that’s just down the road – Don’t look back! You’re not going that way!
