Made this, has I am feeling low…
When things are getting me down, and I feel I have nowhere to turn,
When my loved ones around me feel so concerned,
When I am high and I feel I have money to burn,
I still raise from the depths of madness.
When I feel I have no more to give to this life,
When I hurt myself, with the cutting edge of a knife,
When I feel I have outlived this world,
When I feel I need to part my ways and leave with the reaper,
I hear a voice say to me, “all together”
When I feel that nobody can help me,
When it’s so complicated that the no-one wants to help me,
All I see is regret on people’s faces,
While they wave me goodbye and say “best wishes”
When I feel I do not have the strength inside me anymore,
I will show the world I am still here, and I will walk outside my front door,
When people will look at me and think, “I thought Sam lost his mind”
I shall make them remember, I, Sam, am I one of a kind,
The reason for this is because I still raise.
When I have the feel for broken trust and feeling betrayed,
I will not rely on anyone because no-one will come to my aid,
When I have tears from my eyes, and fears from my mind,
Again, I will raise.
When people think I have given up on trying to find a cure,
I can honestly say, I am damned sure,
I have tried everything and still have not given up, why you ask?
It’s because I still raise.
I will not allow my illness to take over me and punish me,
I know what I must do, unlock my dreams with my key,
To fight another day, without holding onto any shame,
As I will always raise, even when the world whisper in my ear,
Give up, nothing has worked, you might as well leave with death,
So what I do is a take a step back and take a deep breath,
Then I raise to all my doubters,
I am strong and will carry on being strong, all day long.
Remember, when I am long gone from this world,
I can say I leave with my head held high,
I am ready to meet my angels in the sky,
Feel from lies, and from hate,
I shall walk through the gate of heavens,
Free I will be,
Strong I am,
I will always raise,
Even when I die.
