Sometimes it’s impossible to get out of bed,
When your mind is exhausted and your body feels dead.
And you think to yourself – what will I do?
Do I have the strength? Can I make it through?
Perhaps, you’re having that moment right now,
As you question the who, what, when, where, and how.
Instead, seek out your ‘why’; I realize it’s tough,
But fight through guff and…
Maybe you’re right in the thick of it,
Thinking you might not ever come out it.
I’ve been there, in the depths of despair,
Where you completely lose the ability to care.
Mentally ill, physically sick,
Spiritually drained; tired of the shit-ake mushrooms.
At times like these, focus on all that you love,
The people, the places, the incredible stuff and…
I understand, everyone has beaten you down with doubt,
They’ve left you for dead; they’ve counted you out.
Though you’ve been knocked down nine times, GET UP ten,
If you’ve reached your limit, just try it again.
For it’s not the size of the pup in the fight,
But the size of the fight in the pup, so…
When you GET UP,
You get going,
You get on with it,
You get through with it,
You get out of it,
You get over it,
You get rid of it,
You get on top of it,
You get what you need from it.
So just when you think you’ve had enough…
