Poem: Trying

Try to think of better things, of days of mirth and laughter.

Forget that everything seems so difficult, and look ahead to daylight coming like a beacon full of hope.

Look to all the people, who support you wherever life flings your battered body.

A safety net is meant to catch, and that’s what you have friends and family for.

Try to do anything, to get out of a negative mindset. 

Life is calling, days go by, and you’re never going to get that time back.

So use this experience to grow and become the person you are meant to be.

Take risks, because it is better to have lived and failed, then to never have tried at all.

Embrace the pain, it forms you, strengthens you, and makes you smarter.

And if you must spend your time sleeping, dream of days that are full of good cheer, of things accomplished, and with loved ones spent.

Never stop trying, the world is calling, the fight is now stronger, 

Although, it feels as if you’re failing, you are only learning, ways that do not work.

And are ever closer to a way that you can find your peace, and truly spend the time you’ve got. 

And with a  whisper say– I lived.
