Have you ever been lonely within a crowd,
Yet sought more loneliness than is allowed?
“Mix,” you’re told. “It will do you good!”
But you’d leave the gathering, if only you could.
If your car was scratched would you throw it away?
That’s you. You’re scratched in much the same way.
What can you do? Where can you hide?
Or will you find some strength, and then some pride?
Only you can decide what’s best and right,
Fight this depression with all your MIGHT!
To try is hard, but a worthy thing,
To wait is worthless, a wasted thing.
Those who try stand to fall.
While those who wait gain nothing at all.
