By nature high-strung
But I thought I was strong
If not physically, emotionally
For things to roll off my back
Be mature and take the high road
I knew life is not fair
And valid excuses are but excuses
The end result what really counts
My shield deflecting the negative
Now I have more than holes
My whole shield is weak
Need to acknowledge my pain
Without it drowning me
How do I cope?

(2014)

Depression, cope
