sometimes its hard to live




do you ever have trouble remembering why

you should  b r e a t h e ?

do you ever fight to take a breath

because your   h e a r t  keeps asking is it really worth it?

do you choke over a response

when someone asks "how are you?"

and get so caught up in the lie of

i ' m   f i n e


that you forget to ask them back?



sometimes... its hard to live


its hard to remember what makes life


w o r t h    i t .



i'm here to tell you,

that lie that everyone tells you

to get you to calm down




at least, it feels like a lie

like a promise that no one can keep

like opening your lungs under water


only to find that


there was no air to breathe



its gonna be okay




because i know it feels bleak


God, I know it feels like you're never going to get out


of this pit of darkness




i know it feels like your life isn't worth it anymore




but please. please.   s t a y




you will never be able to change your mind


if you turn your back


on life now




waves come and then go


rain clouds dry of rain


you will wash up on shore


coughing up water


gasping for breath


you will be exhausted


you will be soaked through


and dirty


and cold

you will never be the same.




but you will be alive.




the storm will pass,

and as you cough out salt water from your lungs,


and as you suck in breaths of the cold morning air


remember


that you were worth fighting for


that every second of pain


built up to this moment


when you would be free


and you would feel wind in your hair and the sun on your skin and the grass under your feet


and know


that you did it


you made it


you won the war for your life


the darkness lost.




i know it feels like


you're losing the battle

right now,


and i know


its hard to exist sometimes


so don't make it complicated.

don't worry if you can't do everything

you want to do

for now, breathe


allow yourself

to  just

  2. I honestly don’t know how you guys always seem to capture the essence of a young girl’s heart in such a raw and explicitly honest way. This post hits really close to home for me because I know people who have definitely wondered if staying alive is the worth it, so this post means a lot to me. <3
