458 Survive [21 January 2002]

the single hardest thing to do
is to survive those black days
when all you want is silence
a peace with death
that is dreamed of
sought after
but to survive those thoughts
only goes to make you stronger
makes the next step easier
seeking the solace of suicide
is giving up
life is about survival
do not let that evil win
defy it by giving the next day
its chance at proving that life
is so much better than death
for in truth
death does not bring you peace
it will only bring you grief
survive it
live the next day
and the one after that
become stronger, defy death
Live. . .
all those who antagonize you
defy them, live
remember they grow weaker
with each taunt they throw
you can only grow in strength
do whatever helps you deal
with the darkness inside
but never give in
