Recognize A Broken Spirit

When you have fought all the fight you can

When your soul is bent down t’wards the ground

Your heartbeat slows and your hands stop trying

And your mind can’t let anything else in

And you are just tired, just…tired.

Rest brings another day of the same

Prayers fly around your head in vain

Your mind can’t see past the window pane

And your heartbeat slows

Everything just stays the same

And I am just tired.

I have nothing of my own

I have nothing I can give

I don’t know how to help them

I don’t know how to help myself

Help me. Someone.

Help me find what or how things work

Or to accept the fact that nothing does

Because I’ve tried it all, I’ve done it all

And I’m still here at the bottom.
