Don't Think I'm Giving In
by: Sarah Jane T.

Far beyond all my other troubles.
Far beyond all possible pains.
Beyond Hell and beyond all reason
Only one deep pit remains.
Wherever I go... whereever I tread
there always follows a thing called E.D.
I thought I was stronger
but now I'm not sure.
Somehow I'm falling... falling... and falling
and nothing is secure.
I want people to know that I've tried really hard.
Please don't think that I've given in.
I'm still fighting and trying to regain
that little girl that I know lies within.
I'm slipping, but I'm clawing. Trying to find
someone's hand to pull me through the terrors of my mind.
I take a step, I fall behind faster than forward.
Struggling to grasp the happiness I'm reaching toward.
I must keep going. Don't think I'm giving in.
I will always be trying to reign over this fight I must win.

Please, don't think I'm giving in.
