    Strength

    The future is scary, that's why it's hard to let go of the past
    Of the very pain we all know
    We humans prefer to feel the same pain over and over again
    We prefer getting used to it
    Getting used to bleeding from that same wound
    Yes! We all seek healing
    But we're more scared of what would happen if healing skips us
    New pain feels more painful
    And old pain, we get used to
    My past might be a nightmare
    My future might be my paradise
    But I'm too scared of risking my mental health
    Risking it for something I'm not even sure exists
    Me trying to make myself feel happy
    Is like throwing what I think are darts
    In a pitch black room at a target that maybe exists
    I don't think people realize how much strength it takes to pull your own self out of a dark place mentally......
    So if you've done that today or any other day, I'm proud of you
