This life will put one to the test –
To sink or swim becomes the quest.
To overcome the pain inside,
To learn to just enjoy the ride,
Is harder than I’d like to think.
I fear I’ll rise only to sink.
This darkness hovers like a cloud;
It makes me want to scream out loud.
This shell of life that I one filled,
The hopes and dreams that I once willed,
Have all begun to fall away,
As colors slowly fade to gray.
Along the way I’ve lost my voice;
To be alone’s my only choice.
My fears have made my heart a trap;
No thing to do but mind the gap.
My thoughts do form a morbid cell
Of bitterness I can not quell.
My weary soul longs for the sun,
And dreads a life spent on the run.
Yet just a single ray of hope,
Can be enough to change one’s scope.
So even if I seem to fail,
I know that goodness will prevail.
