Those Minutes That count.

Kingston 2007 (Gainesvill)



3 hours,
2 hours,
1 hour,
30 minutes,
10 minutes,
5 minutes,
4 minutes,
3 minutes,
2 minutes,
1 minute,
30 seconds,
10 seconds,
5 seconds,
3 seconds,
1 second,
Sorry did you try finding me,
Well here I am,
I died 1 second ago,
I was standing there beside you every day and you can't see through that stupid fake smile that I hide behind.
You should've been there.
I was fighting against something that always win's
Depression.
Depression Has filled my mind,
Depression Hurts me,
Makes me do things that I shouldn't want to do.
You should've save me,
Because every moment that I lived was another minute fighting and every minute counted.
