There’s one road to the morning
There’s one road to the truth
There’s one road back to civilisation
But there’s no road back to you.

The cigarette is a detail I get stuck on because to me it symbolizes a level of carelessness one has probably only known if one has been so depressed that thoughts of self harming/quitting it all become a disturbingly casual thought.
It's like they're sitting there like "Fuck it, if a spark from this sets me on fire then so be it. I can't even say I'd mind anymore.".

Without a road you'll have to fly and stand taller than the obstacles in your path to get to where you need to be, let your will be the wind that carries you.
I may not know what you're going through, but hope this little line gives you some encouragement.
As for the drawing, it's a very expressive piece of art which genuinely feels like it's drawn with raw emotion.
