my only hope

I fell asleep one dreary day I lost my will, I lost my way I ran from all I ever knew And feared the call I was supposed to pursue. I drank from wells set on fire And filled my voids with unholy desires. I dressed the part to play the role And slowly began to lose my soul. But, when your down and Shadows grow And you finally have nowhere else to go The only way to rise again Is from the power of an eternal friend. Many leave when you’re at your worst When your hearts so heavy, it’s about to burst Many claim so many titles Their efforts are futile and their time is idle Their promises bleed through the incisions For they can’t possibly understand the mission. Battles have been the hardest at times And memories have played with my mind But, I keep marching like any good solider would Even though most of the time I am misunderstood. I keep on fighting the forces and the fears, Knowing one day he will wipe away every tear. I keep on giving it my best even when it’s not enough For only one holds my heart when the waves get too rough. I keep on believing that one magnificent day I will see true glory wash away my yesterdays I keep on believing that one marvelous day, I will see the gates of my destiny enrapture my today.

Congratulations on your courage and your Poem. You found words that inspire and elevate you higher. Regards David from NZ I posted a poem called Hello Pain - It was my perspective on finding inner strength and a tribute to all who endure and find their peaceful core where Love grows eternal.
