This is another one that I wrote when I was coming out of a particularly bad depression. I did originally write it as song lyrics and I actually put it to music but then I could only figure out how to sing the chorus so I kind of gave up and just decided to leave it as a poem.
The question was asked constantly
And before you give up
Try looking deeper within
And you’ll find your reason there.
At the core of your pain
What is it that you’ll gain?
Is it the reason your not insane?
There’s more to this than what we see,
It’s more about who we choose to be.
The knowledge of the saints
Maybe the riches of a king
We all have a different purpose
That needs fulfilling
All a different meaning
But if we learn to fight on instead of giving up
We will learn a little something about living
And then you’ll know “why I am here.”
You can learn to live again
If you know where to find the spark
Life isn’t the end in fact it’s just a start
So don’t give up just yet
I’d hate to see you part
Without taking a second to look within your heart.
There is still a chance to save you,
All you gotta do is believe in me.
Don’t you dare say there is no hope,
Don’t you dare give up on me,
Cause if you really believed in me,
You wouldn’t have let go
If you are still asking, then you haven’t even tried.
So don’t cry to me when both your hands are tied
