Throne of Happiness

I have charted life’s darkest paths,
And slain depression’s beasts.
I have faced the face of sorrow,
From across the table of Satan’s feasts.

I have walked the world with company,
And have faced the same roads alone.
I have slept on un-comfy beds,
Between the walls of home.

I was banished from the joy of day,
With not a single place to go.
Accompanied by my constant companion,
The strength of my own shadow.

I have tussled with my thoughts,
And have submitted to the stress.
But I’m back to regain my throne,
Of the land of happiness.

    I love these lines: "I have slept on un-comfy beds,/Between the walls of home." ...and the ending is perfect! Great work, my friend! Ruben.

    It is so good to see you here, among friends, Raul. It has been a journey back perhaps, but if there is a lesson to be learned, it is that friendship grows by open hearts, sharing hardships as well as the sunshine. You have shared it all, with us. I am grateful to be among the friends:)
