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.
