reach out

During my visit to the vault the other day, I came across this piece. I cannot remember writing it, however, I do remember the moment in time in which it was written. It was a very dark moment and my ‘lighter self’ was trying to convince my ‘darker self to stay away from the black hole.

there may come a time

when sadness appears ˜

the pain,

the agony,

the tears.

when your world will seem

to be falling apart


overrun with fear.

your frustrations will hound you,

anxieties paralyze you


tears will flood your eyes.

self-doubt & worry

will eat you up;

chiseling away at your pride.

as time slips away,

exhaustion will ensue

and weakness will weigh you down ˜

anything beautiful along your path

will be looked upon with a frown.

you will still have those moments

where the world will look bright ˜

though fast & fleeting it may seem.

you will fall in a hole

where things are twisted & tangled

so tight

you are unable to breathe.

how you decide

to get out of this place

will depend on your strength & resolve.

you may stay where you are

drowning yourself


reach out…

    Very beautifully written, I thought this was a perfect one with the recent tragedy, too. Many times, all it takes is to find someone to hold us and listen to us. Reaching out is a wonderful way to express, ‘I can be your lifeline.’
