Stairs

Written by: Christina Wiliams

** 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.

Pink,

Purple,

Orange,

Blue,

Red,

and Yellow.



Each step I take I see words representing the color of the steps.



Happiness,

Weakness,

Anxiety,

Sadness,

Hope,

and Hurt.



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.

STOP!

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.
