Misery loves company and it visits me often. Whether I’m stuck here workin’, or stuck here coughin’. It’s the only thing that’s stuck by my side my whole life. I’ve been ignored, I’ve been beaten. I’ve been dropped as a friend for talking about the feelings I usually keep in. I’ve been stood up, I’ve been raped. I’ve cried and had melt downs that ended up being taped. And more. And I’m sure that there’s more in store. But I will take each struggle with my head held high. No matter how much I wanna curl up and cry. No matter how much I wanna give up and die. Because misery may love company, but I will not let it be my life. And I will not let it win, and make me wanna pick up that knife.
