it takes away motivation
to wake up in the morning
to open your eyes when you’re awake
to get out of bed when eyes are open
to bathe when you’re out of bed

to find clothes when youre done
to eat something when you’re dressed
to not go back to bed once youve eaten enough to survive


It takes away the motivation
to talk to people or to see them
to go out of your house or even turn the light on inside
to pursue a dream or even just complete the daily chores
to love to help to ask for help
