Darkness

You wake up and ponder

maybe wonder whats the point

all you can see is the darkness

all you can feel is the world's despair

it envelopes you until you can't breath

you struggle to sit up and push it away

but all that surrounds you is darkness


How can you free yourself from its chains?

what will bring you a ray of light

we all have a guiding spirit to lead us

to take us back to the light

look around when you are in despair

think of others worse off than yourself


See the truth that stares us all in the face

just open your eyes and your heart too

and back into the shadows, the darkness will fade

    Uplifting write this! It's easy to sink into despair if your thoughts are directed inwards - I like the solution you offered - one needs just expand their focus and see that they have something to be thankful for. Well penned Shadow.

    You may want to add an ''e'' at the end of breath.
