The sun sets faster; 
Faster than it should. 
It rises slower; 
Slower than it would. 
The darkness always lingers; 
Lingers as long as it could. 
The light rarely shines; 
Shines ever so dim. 
There’s always a void; 
A void so hard to fill. 
There’s always an empty feeling; 
A feeling that drains the will. 
The world is filled with sadness; 
Sadness that causes tears to spill. 
Gets harder to live this life; 
Life becomes ever so grim. 
The days get tougher; 
Tougher without reason. 
The nights get longer; 
Longer no matter what season. 
An evil takes over this body; 
Even the body begins to treason. 
It starts to drain your hope; 
hope becomes ever so slim. 
But there is still power in life; 
Life is still worth the fight. 
There is always a purpose; 
Purpose that requires all might. 
A world that needs to show love; 
Love that can rekindle the light. 
It’s the only chance at happiness. 
Happiness, a feeling so rare. 
When hardship strikes, remember; 
Remember the strength you’ve always shown. 
When failure occurs, remember; 
Remember how much you’ve learned and grown. 
When loneliness takes over, remember; 
Remember you are never alone. 
Start with a simple smile. 
Smile, if you dare. 
We each have our demons to fight; 
But the fight gets easier together. 
We each have our monsters to hunt; 
But we need to let others join our endeavour. 
We need to open up and let others in; 
Only then will happiness stay forever. 
We all need to express our love. 
Love, the only thing that shows you care.
