There is a darkness around me,
One that is not ready to fade,
It envelopes me,
And makes me feel life is not worth it.
Life has been tough,
And it seems to get tougher every day.
I’ve lost loved ones,
And find it hard to keep smiling.
It is described as a darkness,
Because it is hard to see,
More than a day ahead at a time,
And the darker the less you can see.
But I won’t let the darkness win,
I’ll use my other senses,
To get where I’m going,
To where it is light again.
