How do you react to the stresses of life?

Cuz' I'm hurting and ready to cry.
I promise...I promise I did try.
I put my best foot forward,
Only for things to go downward.
Life is feeling so dry.
And at times, I just want to die.
Cuz' nothing goes the way its supposed to go.
I promise...I promise I wanted to avoid this low.
I studied like no other,
Only just to smother.
Life has me playing average Jo.
And at times, I just want to grow.
Cuz' I'm feeling deserted by everyone.
I promise...I promise I didn't want things undone.
I gave my all into this,
Only to sink deeper and deeper into that endless abyss.
Life has surely lost all of its fun.
And at times, I think I am done.
I promise to keep trying and hold my faith.
I have to give what's left of me,
Only to avoid becoming what I don't want to be.
Life needs me to go straight,
And at times, I need to survive the hate.
