Once upon a time things were better than this,
But the sky has grown opaque,
As the wind wails with pain.
The sunny skies rest within your memory,
Now the raging storms engulf you.
They take you under and pull you down,
Attempt to drown you in agony.
You once stood tall with your feet so firmly planted,
But now you lie on the floor,
Straining to find an ounce of strength.
Now the rain is pouring down,
Rain that progressed due to your own tears.
Tears for lost love,
Tears of lonliness,
Now they fall on you with building capacity.
So afraid to let go,
Yet afraid to hold on…
You struggle with the temptation of giving up.
But something within you burns,
A passion that Keeps you fighting.
You know that in the morning the sun will rise,
And your feet shall be again firmly planted…
You’ll make it through the storm.
