A Light

Creeps in disguised as love
Takes over the mind
Distrust settles in like mold
And heart disconnects
Tears can’t be stopped
Smiles slowly fade away
Life gets confused as hell
Wondering who could help
Battles become silent
Celebrations are tiring
Feelings are less genuine
Pain become more real
Nothing worth living for
Wanting to end it all
Fading away seems easy
Than the burden to live on
Wondering why it has to be
Strong minds are impacted
There must be way out
Than diminish quietly
Could something save
Who badly want to be
But couldn’t muster a word
Even when inner voice says
“Don’t do it, Don’t do it
It’s wrong what you do”
Mend the broken mind
Even if it seems impossible
Burden shouldn’t be punted
To those left behind
Gloom should be like clouds
That make way for the sun
If only hope can prevail
None should ever weep
May we find in darkness
A light that keeps us alive
