Yet it tingles at the same time
Like an electric current running through your body
Waking up motivated one day
And empty the next.

This disease that constantly puts you down,
Tells you you’re not good enough,
And makes the simple task of waking up every morning…
One of the hardest things to accomplish.

The never ending battle with your own mind
The constant fight to keep pushing through all…
