Sometimes when you get so beaten down you are sure you can't get back up. I've been through a lot of these momments, but why? Why, when we feel total emptiness, and despair, do we keep trying? I have a few of my own answers to this question, but I want to hear yours. Write a poem, story, or a book either about you feeling this way and why you get back up, or a character feeling this way and why they would get back up. Have fun with it and do your best!
