The battle keeps raging
inside of my mind
whispers of dark things
i’d rather not find

I hold back my tears
until no one’s around
and then let them fall
with hardly a sound

i’m so tired of keeping
depression at bay
I want to give up,
let it have its way

yet always I rally,
tenaciously worn
with oft-battered mind
and heart strings all torn…

I must keep on fighting
though exhaustion’s set in
I mustn’t stop fighting
so the darkness can win

still it’s so dreadful
to smile at times
when my thoughts keep on racing,
accounting my crimes

and the darkness keeps creeping
down into my soul
where my tortured self-concept
longs to be whole

please, bring the cease fire
and let it come soon
so my battle-torn selves
can finally commune
