ITS MY BIRTHDAY!!!
Sweet, sweet, suicide, Will you visit me tonight. Tired of feeling suicidal when my aspirations are stifled
Fighting back tears while smiling from ear to ear, I know God won’t help, He’s good, I need to believe in myself
But every time I try dark forces pull me behind, my unfulfilled dreams haunt me incessantly, they depend on me to thrive. Its My BIRTHDAY Anyways, But I have to Go, Tired of All this headaches and Pains. Smiling outside while bleeding inside, Saying I’m Okay when I’m Not
I will return as a Man, To fight for women and young girls, I will not spare any RAPIST, I’ll be a Judge with a difference, I’ll speak for the voiceless And Bless the Poor. My second coming will be AMAZING, LET ME REST!!!
#PleaseForgiveMe #depressionisademon #iwillreturn #itsmyturn”.
