lyrics

It's coming closer // it's settling in // i can feel it// beneath my skin// the weight is epic// pressure relentless// i've been writing this song for hours// i didn't know if i'd make it// we all have bouts with mental illness// for some of us it's harder to shake// don't delegitimize our struggles with comparisons and dismissals //don't let them shame you for asking for help// chemicals and cut public services can cut us out and leave us stranded// coping mechanisms and crutches need to be in conversations//self-care is resistance//everybody seems to know this// where is the patience//we can't fight in isolation//help us find the strength within//we can't fight in isolation//take my hand this is community//you are not alone in this//your existence is important//it might not get better but it does get easier//open your arms and bring it in
