Poem

It’s amazing

One day it's here, next day it’s gone

One day I’m me, next day I’m not

Who’s in control?

From darkness to brightness

From sadness to happiness

Hardly seems fair

For those around me to bear

I can barely stand it myself

But at least alone the damage is small

Days go by and I make it out alive

I will always survive

Is it enough just to survive?

Is it right to give in?

To hand over control

To something or someone I cannot see?

To own the happy days

To claim my happiness

To never cry again

This is the dream I hold on to

To survive
