An anti-psalm of Todd, when everything went wrong.
Everything is terrible right now.
My life is falling apart.
People are talking about me:
“Have you heard what’s happening with him?”
Come now, grit, sustain me,
together we can get through this.
Suck it up.
Things aren’t so bad.
Another night comes.
I’m taking things a day at a time.
Don’t let them see you hurting.
Keep your head up.
I can get through anything if I just
plow through it. I tell myself:
“I am strong, a fighter.
It takes more than this to undo me!”
I am all that I need...
at least, until death comes for me.
