It’s hard.

Right now

Right here

But I’m still with you.

I’m still the ride or die

The one by your side.

So let’s struggle

And struggle

And struggle some more

Because the best struggle.

The Bonnie and Clyde’s

The Rose and Jack’s

The Wesley and Buttercup’s

The Morticia and Gomez’s 

They all go through it.

So even while I question it

Even when one of us does mindless things

Even when we cry

And our finger nails get torn off by this world

I’ll reach for your bloody knuckles with my own

And listen for your voice in the darkness

Whispering that it will all be okay

And I’ll believe you.

So let us struggle

One day we will be great.
