** I wrote this poem in the hope that I will be able to face my fears and find hope. I hope you all can do the same if you are struggling like I am to do so.
I walk down colorful stairs.
Each step I take I see words representing the color of the steps.
As I walk to the end of the steps.
I see the words,
STAY STRONG with an arrow pointing towards my heart.
I try to run from my fear but I am stuck.
The words STAY STRONG start flashing and the arrow keeps getting bigger and bigger!
I start freaking out.
I close my eyes.
A minute later I then feel a sense of freedom.
I open my eyes and the stairs are yellow.
I finally look to my heart,
And it says YOU ARE STRONG!
Then out of a nowhere the words on the stairs read:
YOU HAVE THE POWER TO STOP THE DARKNESS WITHIN YOU.
JUST HAVE HOPE.
The stairs go back to normal.
