We are constantly cutting
Through negativity

It’s easy when we’re nice and sharp
But even the sharpest blade is bound to dull
Making life harder to cut through

Hardships get harder
Negativity gets more negative
reality gets real

Until eventually we can no longer cut
We feel useless
But there’s hope

When you oil a machine
Sharpen a blade
It doesn’t make it new again
But it makes it much better
Much sharper
Comparable to when it was new

Much like a machine if you take care of yourself you can go much longer
Make life worth living
Sharpen the blade that is your life
It’s okay to be dull
It’s okay not to be okay
