It’s time for me to hold my head high
As I wave to my demons and say goodbye
I’M finally winning a long fought fight
I will never let go of this light.

The weight that pushes me down
Is’nt enough to make me drown
I’M found anew with a better purpose
I’M stronger now and swim to the surface

The dark days still trail behind me
That is something people can see
But it’s time that I start to heal
Because it’s ok for me to feel

It might become a type of grey
That I will have to keep at bay
to me when I say
I will keep the black away

Now I have a clear sight
Of all the colors I invite
I lift myself to a
NEW height

Everything will be alright

Sometimes we need a little help to stand back up. This site , that I check 100 times a day was filled with people that would read my poems and tell me to hang on and to get help. Just expressing myself has given me hope.
