when your fallback is 90s’ emo music
when you forgo sleeping
when you slept too much
when you start skipping class this late in the semester
when you start to dread looking at the messages that reminded you of responsibilities
when you’re glad you’re fasting ’cause you don’t have to think about eating
when you think you don’t give a damn anymore
you pick yourself back up.
after every lapse in judgement.
you ain’t dead yet.
even if you think you’re halfway there.
