It's important to push through the shit. Stand up to the bad. Scream to the darkness. And fight for your right to shine in the already seemingly brighter world. It doesn't matter if its daylight around you. A torch still works in daylight, its just harder to see it when you're holding it. But that light is still there. It's always there.
It's that moment you realise it's always been there that you're searching for. Just hold on to the one fact that even though it seems like there is a never ending sadness that is overwhelming... Know that there is light.. somewhere in the world. That's what reaching happiness is about. Knowing there is good. Even if it feels like you can't have it... Because just knowing is the beginning to getting.
Dear reader of this poem here,
I wish to speak so listen clear,
So in this life, you will find,
A mass of trials that do bind,
All the problems you will face,
and throw you in a hard cold place.
But I want to tell you softly,
you forget far too oftly,
When you seek the good in all,
within yourself I see downfall.
When spending time being nice,
within yourself there comes a price,
All the good things that you say
to yourself, they go away...
Your heart, it twists into hate
and internally you will grate,
Upon all the good things that have stood
within your heart, forget what's good.
I know this path of which you wander,
The light at the end seems so yonder.
But from a friend who has been there,
I whisper softly, don't despair.
These things within ourselves we tell,
come from a deep self-loathing hell.
And I can vouch for the hard-rock task,
of being lost and needing to ask,
For some help, of which we're scared,
will not come if pleas are heard.
But please, I beg, do not despair,
for, for you, I will be here.
It is my job, as your friend,
to stick with you until the end.
And furthermore into the light,
where together we'll ignite,
The darkness that... haunts us both,
so, I say, please keep me close.
Not just me though, the rest too,
I promise they're as good as glue.
To keep you sane and well grounded,
Coz this is why, friendship was founded.
Smile once, at least a day,
The light will come, your own way.
Be not ashamed of who you are,
you try you best with outstretched arms,
And one day soon, your hands will reach,
The edge of happiness and breach,
Through the waters of apparent sad,
and a feeling of warmth will wash with glad,
upon your face and body too,
know we'll always be here for you.
