 Struggling with Wound? Become a better singer in 30 days with these videos!

From a soapbox, I have glorified my slow disintegration
Nothing more than my verbose, romanticised self-deprecation
I've little more to offer than advice on letting blood
My cynicism serves no purpose, and my love is not enough
To eschew negative behaviours that I've tried to use to cope 
Abuse of prescribed medication lay as a hand around my throat

But sobriety failed to sedate high functioning depression
My levity has always been a wound that needs a dressing

And the diagnostic lens through which my health is often viewed 
Fails to take in to account the uncomfortable truth
Perhaps my pessimism prospers in the absence of progress
Is my cynicism premature or justified by my emptiness?

But sobriety fails to sedate high functioning depression
My levity has always been a wound that needs a dressing

"Since becoming an adult I've tried to think about it less often
But at the tender age of sixteen I'd already hit the bottom
My brother found me sitting on the floor of the family bathroom
Crying hysterically, and desperately clutching to two or three packets of painkillers 
That I'd been terrified of for weeks I'd been feeling low for a while
But I never truly felt comfortable speaking about it
And he wasn't really able to understand what he'd seen 
But he knew that I was upset so decided to sit beside me
And that was enough for me to view the situation from a new perspective 
While true I knew what I was doing, I'd neglected to think beyond that moment 
And ironically it scares me to death now knowing that I may have left him without a brother 
Because of a mindset I'm yet to fully recover from 
But I guess the memory also invigorates me with a hope that evidently I was lacking at the time
Which is fortunate because now, ten years down the line
I've thought of leaving more than I care to remember
But while the bad days still hold weight, they're definitely getting better 
Every day I dilute the nefarious self-deprecation and loathing 
A little more with the help of my loved ones
Whose constant support I certainly wouldn't be here without 
In all the ways that I am weak, I am also strong
Learning how to speak gave me the strength to carry on"
