Know sometimes it is hard to get out of bed.
easier to shield self from the day ahead
and stay away in the alone dark.
Difficult to see with eyes closed
that times are better ahead.
You walk around with no one understanding.
That is what your mind says.
Thoughts based on what you see
and feel about the outside world.
The tragic outweighs the good in your eys.
Hold on to the good you feel
so you see the better ahead.
The negative may overwhelm
your entire being at all moments,
giving thoughts to take it all away.
Before that final step is prepared
remember that is irreversable.
Grab on to the one thing
that lets you know it is better ahead.
Find a person who has walked
similar paths of troubles.
Those people are all around
to prop you mentally up
without wanting a return.
Share experiences of lonely thoughts
and turn to positive
one step at a time
until the sunrise ahead
is within reach
and the feel ahead is better.
