Paradox

Depression doesn’t care and it makes you not care, even though you do still care. It doesn’t discriminate. It can happen to anyone. Use your voice for those who can’t. We can never stop fighting.

Depression doesn’t care who you are

Or what you do, or say

It doesn’t take vacations

Or coffee breaks

It strikes without warning

And sinks its claws into your mind, body, and soul

The talons of apathy and despair

Can bring the strongest of us

To their knees

Rise Above

Everyone encounters hate at least once in their lives. Learning to overcome it and emerging from other side with a thicker skin is imperative to becoming stronger and developing character. Like growing callouses on your hands to protect them from harm, the emotional and spiritual core of you must do the same. 

 

Rising up from the ashes of condemnation

She emerged stronger, more resilient

The shadow of her determination

Eclipsing those who held her back

The winds of change were never more refreshing

The destruction of their hate never tasted sweeter
