This is For You
This is for you.
You, who cannot remember the last time you laughed.
You, who does not see anything but insecurities when you look in the mirror.
You, who is currently feeling sad.
You, who is just kinda down and out and maybe a little depressed.
You, who has cried and cried but can still feel the pain.
You, who has been abused for years and doesn’t understand why.
You, who is feeling completely hopeless and lost.
You, who has no clue which direction to go in but is to timid to even take the first step.
You, who is the single parent, doing it alone, working three jobs, just to make ends meet and provide.
You, who hasn’t felt that they have worth or value.
You, who is holding on so tightly to the past, that you are allowing your future to slip through your fingers.
Somehow, you must remember that the darkness that seems to be endlessly looming over you, is actually quite shallow and eventually, it will be lifted.
Just because you cannot yet see the light, it does not mean the light is not there.
For even the sun must sometimes wait patiently behind the storms, the rain and the clouds, before it inevitably gets its chance to shine.
