This post is different from my previous ones. Last night, the news about the suicide of someone whom I know, had left me wondering IF life is that simple to just put an end to it.
No matter how hopeless life may seem to be, have faith...you'll find a glimmer of hope that will lead you to a fuller, meaningful path.
I'm sharing with you a poem by Brian Quinn:
When all about you is black with gloom,
And all you feel is pending doom,
When your bone is racked with grim despair -
When every breath is a gasp for air,
Keep on going though you need to grope,
For around the bend is a ray of hope.
A ray of hope perhaps is all that's left,
As your will to live has been bereft,
You've lost it all, it's just no use!
You can end it all, you need no excuse.
But throw away that piece of rope,
And give yourself a chance of hope.
Just give yourself just another day,
Brushing aside what your thoughts might say.
This is your life and you can make a new start,
By ignoring the brain - just follow the heart.
Taking baby steps in order to cope,
And minute by minute you'll build on your hope.
Build on your hope, one day at a time,
Though the road is steep and hard to climb,
The hurt of the past - they should be dead,
The fears of the future are all in your head.
Just live in the present and refuse to mope,
Your live will sparkle for you're living in hope.
