Navigating the Darkness

I examine others around me flourishing

Their lives blooming like a flower

I wander aimlessly through my own

Everything I touch wilts instantly

Each time I catastrophically halt my world

It becomes that much harder to bounce back

As I stand here today I have miles to make up

This nightmare is my reality unfortunately

All of which comes from my own hand

Blame can no longer be deflected to others

And I have to face the cold hard facts

I try to cling on to something positive in my life

But it's like I am swaying from a slippery ledge

As each day passes I lose a finger's grip

There was once a time when I held hope closely

But through the years optimism has moved beyond the horizon

I pray the Lord will fill me with vision and knowledge

While my life's flame flickers in the worlds gale force winds

The battle within me has spilled over into others lives

I pray if I search hard enough I can find a reason to change

And start a journey that I know to be terrifying

But ultimately ends on my own personal path of righteousness
