but I won't let this build up inside of me…

-

i struggle to push myself through the day
& i struggle to fall asleep,
& yet again i struggle to stay awake.

i fight with myself to do my homework
& fight with myself to just relax for a while
& still fight to just get it all done.

i resist my need for sleep
& resist my need for food
& again resist my need for friends.

i can't win
when everything's
such a fucking
bloody battlefield.
