Image for the poem Where dark lies

Where dark lies

Where dark lies

I have gone so far
down at times that
despair has become
my focus and death
has looked like
paradise.

Why am I still
here? Because
I stared death
in its face and
met the challenge
it represented.

Knowing myself
was the challenge
and I realised in
the mirror was
myself looking back.
Overcoming me took
me to realise that
stopping me from
jumping into an
abyss only took
me.
