Trying not to lose hope for the future of me

Trying to hold onto those things in which I believe

Trying not to let the dark thoughts take control

Trying to keep my head above water, it's so very cold

Trying to make sense of what's come to pass

Trying somehow to make a good mood last

Trying to be a friend to those in need

Trying not to listen to someone's negative creed

Trying to forgive; trying to forget

Trying to be happy, at least for a bit
