a r t CREATE DESIGN l i f e

Hope Has No Ceiling

I will not deny this truth

Pain is a path I will choose

I am strong, I always will be

I never gave up, I never will leave

And the rest of this life is something I will beg to see

I hear voices

They tell me to end my own life

But I never will, nor will I pick up the knife

A symbol I have made that represents suicide

I’ve made that promise to myself

And I make it to you

Abandoning such, would be a pointless thing to do

For though this life carries suffering, its magic is heaven sent

The voices I hear, are one in the same, never bent

Calling my name, a name life has lent

They are my own, telling me I’m fragile

Screaming I’m insane, heard inside for miles

But they are just voices

They are just noises

And my voice is carried by a mind that chooses to make choices

Rejoice, for I have chosen, to live, and to live is to be strong

And to live is to just be, and that is something even I can see

These voices are simply noise, noise that I can tame

I scream as one, louder than any of their commands can ever say my name

And so this life I live, and so this wisdom I find, and this examined existence finds itself

Because of this, both pain and pleasure, polar opposites, are felt

And it is you I teach

Even, as it is I, whom I speak

You know now, I am bipolar

I am not weak

Sounds of myself simply leak through

But it is this same self that speaks to all of you

Listen if you want, ignore me if you choose

But I have made the invisible visible, so stigma and ignorance will loose

Tell me I am wrong

And have been all along

I will tell you I thought the same

But still I write a song

This is merely a symptom

This sickness is not a game

This is a symptom of a sickness that will listen

To the choices you make, to your undeniable position

This sickness is heavy, and ready to cause suffering

But through words of honesty, it can become just one thing

A thing that gives one purpose, which gives one reason

To never run from this life, to embrace pain without leaving

For after you hurt, you will find yourself healing

And the sky will open up to you

As hope has no ceiling

Let the sky just be

Darkness you will find

Heaven you will see
