So today I have decided to share an old poem of mine. Like I’ve stated before, I’m not very good at sharing my writing, at least not any of my personal writing. So I hope you like it. I wrote this when I was having one of my numerous blah days. But for all of you going through a tough time right now… remember back to all the things you have struggled to get through and realize that you made it through them to get to where you are now. Remember, do not count what is yet accomplished, but to keep track of everything you’ve already achieved.
Before It Gets Better 9/1/12
Grey clouds hang overhead,
with the promise of tears still left unshed.
It gives off the sense of forced calm,
but reality threatens to be a violent maelstrom.
Everything spiraling down,
lost to the world without a sound.
The clouds open and shed their tears,
the maelstrom dishes out the fears.
In a torrent they come,
but really it’s what’s left inside-
the pressure builds and you succumb.
The clouds remain holding its might,
and you try so hard to be alright.
Forgetting all you once held dear,
and trying to keep your heart clear.
You put on a smile and fake the day,
half hoping the clouds will go away.
