Rock Bottom

In a world of the unknown, I scoured for a place to build a home…

Although I hit rock bottom

I held my head high

I managed to smile but still cried…

I felt lost in a world of Jurrasic,

With Strange Creatures, that wouldn't die…

Up & Out of that hole 🕳️,

I crawled because I had Life…

I struggled with giving up the Dream

Of you and I…

Lonely and Scared

I vowed,

I will Survive!

Although the enemy

Portrayed to be a friend,

I shared my Love

Greatly from within…

Sudden spells began,

Hauling me into the Dark

But still, I made it to the Light…

Desolate Feelings &

Cold withered

Hearts Cry at Night…

For a moment I thought to myself: “ This Can't be my life.”

I slept next to a Demon, while Angels whispered in my ear…

Letting me know that My Blessings were near…

I don't remember your face, but I recollect that place.

With my last bit of Hope, I implored the Lord to take me from the Waste,

I didn't desire to Race…

I may have been at the Bottom

But Still, I Smiled

Because I Had Too…

I Ought To…

I Must Smile 😊,

Because With Every Smile Comes Hope 🙏
