Golden boys and pretty girls,
blue ties and pink frills,
bodies beneath the floor boards,
eleven different kills.

We were the picture of sophistication,
Red lipstick and champagne glasses,
but now I've traded in my glass display case and dresses
for padded rooms and suicide jackets,

All I wanted was to make you happy,
but I was drowning in this glass box you built me,
I'm so sorry,
but this box can't control my raging demons
. . .
and neither can I.

This is a letter to you.
To the you that's had a rough week. To the you that seems to be under constant storm clouds. To the you that's feels invisible. To the you who doesn't know how much longer you can hold on. To the you who has lost faith. And the one that is constantly blaming themselves for everything that goes wrong. To YOU.

You are incredible. You make this world a little bit more wonderful. You have so much potential and so many things left to do. You have time. Better things are coming your way, so please hang in there. You can do it. You CAN.

We'll conquer our demons
and wear our scars like wings

We'll cut the devil out of our hearts
and wear the scars like crowns

We'll rise above the burning embers of a sinking ship
and touch the stars bathed in forgotten dreams.

Before I am their daughter,
their sister,
their aunt,
niece or cousin,
I am my own person
I will not set fire to myself to keep them warm.

Everybody wants happiness
and nobody wants pain,

But you can't have a rainbow
without a little rain

You are only human,
you can only take so much
before you break,
We all bleed the same,
no matter how deep the wounds run.

People will forget what you said,
People will forget what you did,
But people will never forget
how you made them feel.
