Check-out

Chester Bennington lost the fight to his own demons sadly. Like so many creative people, what made him special also made him vulnerable. I have been low at times, but never   low enough to take that step, and hope I never will. But I will not judge somebody who did. Never.
The pain that is felt by the people left behind is deep, and terrible. I do not want to take anything away from that. But the blunt truth is, that their pain is never comparable to the amount of pain you need to feel to take that last step. Humans are build to live, to find hope in the worst situations, and fight on. Let’s keep an eye on each other, in that weird mosh-pit that is everyday life. Pick somebody up when he or she is down. Let’s keep each other safe! 

 

So you had to check out
You had to pass the Gate
Nothing left to fight with
No more time to wait

 

So I heard you were to tired
To fight on until you could sleep
Cause the lights are not working
When you are in to deep

 

So I read the people cursing you
And say you’ll go to hell
The ignorant and the stupid
They think they know it all so well

 

They say go walk in the sunshine
And you will feel alright
I tried it so many times
And all those motherfuckers lied

    Thank you for your post — it’s a great reminder that we are all in this struggle together. I like your metaphor to life as being a “weird mosh pit”.

    Thanks for the kind comments! I was worried it was sounding to bitter, it was so good to read that it was not… Lack of understanding of mental problems is a silent killer, let’s hope it will change one day.
