rising from desperation

There’s a world within

A place that never leaves me

How do I deal with the pain

Brokenness abounds

Looking at my inner world

I seek answers for my life

 

There’s a world without

A place that I can’t escape

Pressures and expectations

Calling me each day

Looking at my outer world

Living becomes a challenge   

 

There’s quiet desperation

A reality for many

Masks hide the deep despair

The lonely cry out

  

So sad and lonely

I rose from desperation

Crying out in the darkness

Looking for some light

I found a friend listening

One who had the time to hear

 

I am larger than my pain

In solitude I found space

How to think and to detach

Discovered new things
