What Have We Got? 

Sometimes I can’t look in the mirror,

which stops me from remembering that I am here.

I am here,

with a beating heart and many purposes;

even if they don’t seem so clear right now.

It’s okay to cry


it’s not okay to give up entirely. 

So I will fight some more, 

and my heart will mend in time,

and with that perhaps my mind will too.

I won’t count on anything like that, 

but I will continue to have hope and love coursing through my veins;

because without them, what have we got?
