Maybe you fall down sometimes

Maybe the voices speak up again

Maybe you get lost easily

Maybe you don’t have to have everything figured out


Maybe some days are harder than others

Maybe today you need the medicine

Maybe your demons can swim and will always resurface

Maybe you don’t ever fully recover


Maybe you hate yourself some days

Maybe you second-guess yourself once in awhile

Maybe it’s not a relapse

Maybe it’s normal


Maybe you want to give up and go home

Maybe sometimes the sadness overwhelms you

Maybe you need to stay in bed some days

Maybe that’s okay

Maybe you’re okay
