"It won’t kill you like you think it will.
It hurts a little more than you imagined
but you have fought so many battles
you know how to survive the pain.
Even if this time
you might not want to.
See, survival is second nature.
It’s instinct.
It’s muscle memory.
You were made for this
from the very beginning.
Don’t you forget that.
It won’t kill you like you think it will
but you’ll still bleed
the colour of the living."
