The War Will Be Won

I taught myself
To see my depression
From the outside.
It is necessary for survival.
Imagining that I am separate
From that "voice".
That voice that is full of trickery.
That persists,
trying to cause my demise.
But there is a fire within
And I must attend to it.
I must fight.
I may lose a battle,
But I refuse to lose the war.
I've made my armour
These many years.
It is beaten up
But still protects me.
I gave up once.
Never will I give up again.
I will not make the suffering
Be for naught.
I deserve better
Than to become a statistic.
I am more than a number.
I have a face.
A face which contorts
Under the pressure
With lines of miles
Reflecting the journey.
I will take the beatings.
I will force myself to get up again.
