Sadness, the world within my mind
Twists and turns with flaming rage,
Fear, self-pity, blame and guilt
Isolate - spirit in a cage.
Fear will scratch the surface
Guilt shall consume my soul,
Blame eventually follows
Self pity devours my whole.
Empty pages hold the future
Unaware what tomorrow brings,
Yet to feel the beauty of the day
Is what gives hope its wings.
Drink life from a half-filled cup
Swallow with dignity and pride,
Worth not measured by the exterior
But what lives and grows inside.
Surrender to a glorious sunrise
And shadows that may fall between,
For even within a droplet of rain
Magic and miracles can be seen ...
* When life faces with a illness and traumas we can shred our life to pieces. We face every emotion known. Sadness, anger, rage, fear, guilt, blame and perhaps even self pity.
These emotions will isolate us from the rest of the world. They zap our energy and steal our will to live.
Until .... we decide they will not control us. There is a beautiful world out there ... and even though it is so hard to see it when we have illness and traumas. We must look deep within and find the strength to fight *
