I fail, and see only the loss of my dreams
Not the drive that allowed me to persue them.
I am told "You are not good enough to continue"
And I am blind to the success that brought me this far.
My vision is filled with those that desire my absence
Blocking out the ones who seek my presence.
I experience the struggles and tribulations of life,
So I forget the joys and triumphs that came with them.
On the crest of a high wave, one sees the limitless sky.
In a trough between waves, one sees nothing but water.
It's R U OK day, and the answer to that question is not always 'yes'. Sometimes, the best thing you can do to help is to listen without judgement, and show compassion.
I'm not normally so blatant, but money is going to be tight for a bit, so if you're able to leave a tip, pledge support, or even share this around for extra reads, I'd appreciated it.
Very well written. Keep up the good work!
