Train Passing

Looking down at my feet on the cold grey tiles , the tips of my shoes edging closer towards the yellow line , i can read the text stencilled on the ground although like the scramble of thoughts in my head these words make no sense to me .

I hear a tremble coming from the tunnel up the tracks . Lights gleaming brighter as they make their way towards the station , I blankly stare as they approach , Paralyzed by the thought of ending it all .
A train passes the platform on its express journey to the stadium , the wind from the carriage hits my face like punch to the cheek . I manage to stand my ground . A voice in my head tells me it's ok , the thought will pass , It will pass just like that train did , as will the challenges I am facing in life .. It may not be as fast but it all will pass .

Author's Note
I had a lot more i wanted to say but i figure keep it short . Mad Peace and Love to anyone whos feeling like this , lately its been hard but i know that these feelings pass . I wish this voice that keeps telling me this had told some people more deserving .
