A blanket of safety wrapped around me,
Making me invisible to the world.
Something can look like one thing,
But be something else entirely.
Step away Warrior.
They don’t know. Pretending nothing’s wrong. That’s the way it has to be.
They don’t understand. They never will.
They don’t see…
How moment by moment, I’m fighting to keep myself alive.
But still, I’m trying.
When I heard this song for the first time, I couldn’t stop the tears from falling. It felt like all the pain I had been holding deep inside me, just came pouring out. The most agonizing pain. The kind of pain that feels so raw. And like it will never end. This is one of those songs that seems as though it were written for me, or even by me.
You’re a warrior. We’re warriors.
