I slide into the darkness.
It is ruthless. It won’t let go.
A constant threat.
To swallow me whole.
I want to be free. To love and dream.
It’s not as it seems. Life escapes me.
Bondage enslaves me. Feelings drown me.
A river of tears. A life of fears.
I wonder who I am. I am lost here.
I slip into the unknown.
Sad. Depressed. Alone.
I need support. Encouragement.
A shoulder to cry on. Someone to lean on.
Beyond the darkness shines a light.
Truth. Love. Hope.
The power to restore my soul.
So close. So far away.
My vision is clouded. I am blind.
Trapped in a circle. No way out.
Around and around. Confusion no doubt.
I am incomplete. No peace of mind.
I search my soul for truth. My heart for love.
It is elusive. What am I afraid of?
My hand reaches out. A desperate attempt.
My world feels shattered. I hate how life is.
No understanding. What lies ahead.
The pit of darkness? Or the light of hope?
Was I born a blessing? Or a joke?
