Why oh why do you hurt me?
What did I do to deserve you?
Where did you even come from?
No one seems to know
No one seems to know anything
Can you give me a break today?
I don’t think I can take much more.
My resources are running low
Where will my endurance come from?
If I say a prayer to have it reduced
Will you let it be answered.
If I take a pill
Will you hide for a while
I treat you special
So you will treat me better
I take my pain medication
So I can confuse you
But still, you never really go away
You think that you can conquer me
But I am stronger than you
There are times when things seem hopeless
But I will never let you take away all my hope
Just when you think you can keep me down
I will stand up and rise above you.
I am not alone
I have a group of friends
They help me deal with you
They lift me up when you try to keep me down
They make me laugh when you make me cry
With God and them, I am never alone
I will never let you destroy me.
