Sometimes, our young people simply need a space to vent, to express their frustrations before powering up and pushing through. This week, Earnesha is ‘writing to rise’, by showcasing her vulnerabilities. A bold step in our fierce world. Sometimes, there is strength in softness.

Over and over and over again
This pain won’t leave like it’s forming within
Must’ve done something terrible like a forbidden sin
Killing myself everyday while hiding it with grins
Don’t want to be bothered, but don’t want to be left alone
Don’t even feel at ease in my own home
I’m asking my father because he sits on the throne
Empty mind but yet these feelings rome
What did I do that was oh so wrong
Patience isn’t there, it is so long gone
Answer me king, oh answer me lord
Heart is bleeding and i don’t see the sword
My happiness is so overdue
I’ve been looking for it, that’s why im writing to you
If this is all my fault just tell me the truth
Running out of time don’t know what to do
Everyone is after me, this world is trying to subtract me
Can’t give up because what good would that be
I’m leaning on you to show me what’s right
Yes I’m drained, but won’t give in without a fight
Yes I love you Lord, but i don’t love this life
Can’t find peace because of all this pain and strife
Show me a sign God, Lord lead the way
Help me before I give in today
This is a letter from your child, please hear me as I pray
