Night Will Fall
Sometimes we forget to celebrate the small victories
We get so wrapped up in the bigger picture that we forget to take life for what it is
One sentence that rings in my ears,
...take it one day at a time, one step at a time
One thing’s for certain, I’m not getting any younger
With each passing day, we grow older,
I like to sit back and think about everything that I’ve been through
All I could do is inhale and exhale deeply
I didn’t have it easy
...but who did?
The life I led wasn’t for the faint of hearts
I remember being in this world with no dreams
No hope that I could crawl out of this place where nothing good ever happens…
I remember crying myself to sleep
Fighting with my demons so that I could get out of bed…
All I saw was darkness surrounding me.
It became so natural to me, the light blinds me.
I found comfort in the dark.
I couldn’t see what I’ve become.
The devil came to haunt me at night.
He crept into my room
Tried to take me under
...To a place where there is no getting out
...A place where fire roams free
As a cold chill ran down my spine,
He told me, “Shh, this will be our little secret.”
Hell, even I started to believe it.
