From Darkness to Light: A Poetic Journey of Overcoming

A heavy weight inside my chest,

A feeling I cannot suppress,

A cloud that hangs above my head,

A constant presence of dread.

It's hard to find the strength to smile,

To carry on for even a little while,

To find the light in the darkest night,

To keep the hope and will to fight.

But I know that I'm not alone,

That I can find my way back home,

That with support and love and care,

I can rise above and meet despair.

So I'll take it one step at a time,

And know that everything will be fine,

For even in the depths of gloom,

There's always a way to find a room.

A room of hope and love and light,

A room where everything's alright,

A room where I can finally see,

That happiness is within reach of me.

So I'll keep walking through the haze,

And know that better, brighter days,

Are waiting just around the bend,

Where my heart can finally mend.
