Sometimes depression becomes all you are. It takes over every thought and every feeling. The pain just sort of becomes you. And then sometimes, you realize that the pain isn't you.

The pain is who I am
I know you won't understand,
But I have a migraine in my head
it never goes away
it's like the pain is who I am

The pain is who I am
Or so I said as I sent myself to the hospital
I didn't intend to go.
I meant to end all the pain
The pain is who I am

The pain is who I am
screaming through the ambulance ride I shouted
I meant to end the pain
I meant to end my life
The pain is who I am

The pain is who I am
and it's the worst part of me
I've never been normal
I've only ever been pain
The pain is all I am

Maybe it's all I will ever be.
Or maybe the pain is not me.
