I wish I could lie besides you And make the world okay That I could chase off all the demons And make a better day I wish I could take your struggles And clear them all away I wish to show you a better future To make you want to stay
I know the world has beat you down I can see it in your eyes The hidden truths and mental ails Some things you can't disguise And I know the world looks bleak as hell And your future seems filled with lies I wish I could give you a way out With plans and words wise
But I know that I am only a single soul Alone I can not give you aid And I too struggle to stay alive with all The demons my mind made And the prejudices of this world brought both us down Sharper than razor's blade But through all the hell of our apocalypse I will make you glad you stayed
Written about my partner and myself. The future looks bleak and with both of us being queer, neurodivergent, and unable to get jobs or keep up with classes, some/most days can be a struggle. But no matter what, I want to face the future with them by my side.
