When life takes a turn so menacingly, to be filled only by sudden DESPAIR. The unendurable pain and sufferings caused by unforeseen circumstances and malicious acts.
The outcome of one’s future left in the hands of manipulation. The fear of being taunted by those you trusted, staring instead into the faces of strangers.
No longer aware of their true intentions, the mind confused and skeptical of everything it once confidently knew and believed. A muddled mess of half completed thoughts. Left in disbelief of the mangled results that its left sorting aimlessly through.
The body reflecting that of the mind. Uncertain movements and trembling hands. A voice not yours leaving your lips on wavering breath. Hindering your ability to perform in a normal manner. What now seems entirely unmanageable and out of control.
Drifting unsteadily away from reality and slipping into a new uncharted realm of the mind. Losing grip on the reins of all that is considered sane.
Your soul battling to remain whole, as it slowly shatters into a million pieces. Pieces swept into the abyss of nothingness.
No chance of returning to its original shape by any force known to man. An empty vessel sitting atop deep dark waters, unforgiving waves billowing towards it filled with rage.
The vessel hopelessly toppling into the depths of madness. Helplessly sinking further, desperately pleading for its rescue to somehow – any way to arrive.
Weight of the unkind world ruthlessly pressing down upon you, smothering any and all cries for help. Echoes unheard and lost to an eternity of solitude.
Yet in the never-ending darkness, something so small and nearly diminished is a glimmering of something beautiful and calming. A glimpse- which can’t be mistaken for anything else but that of HOPE and OPTIMISM.
A tiny sliver of light, able to sneak through the cracks of negativity, ever so delicately puncturing that which seemed impenetrable.
Witness to none other than a magical happening. The impossible now nearing the sunken vessel. Descending ever so gracefully, like that of a glorious angel. It nears your outstretched reach, inching frustratingly close.
It manages to brush the tips of your fingers, shaking with utter excitement and impatience. Finally, your hands steadying to clutch it tightly to your unrecognizable self.
It is everything good and whole. It is the spirit of hope that had lingered above the turmoil. This force so strong and naturally healing. At last… a sigh of relief and a warming sensation sweeping over every inch of your skin.
There is no magic greater in the entire universe. Only good can become of it, and it is yours to keep. As it embraces your mind, body, and soul, the spirit that cannot die begins to lift you upwardly.
Progressing through the obstacles with such ease, you wonder how it can truly be so. How this miracle befell you, when all else had nearly failed you.
The spirit prevails, and pushes through the surface that had contained you a prisoner of your own. The surface below your feet, as it should be.
But it doesn’t stop its flight there; wings of strength and agility pounding against the airs of newfound freedom. It flies bravely on, closer and closer to an orb in sky.
The soothing sun that you never imagined you could get so close. Your spirit of hope taking a last flap of its enduring wings.
After an exhausting journey, it takes its place; perching on soft whispering cotton balls of clouds. Relaxing at long last with a feeling of purpose and pride.
Humbly looking about at skies of shimmering color, eyeing the horizon ahead. Dreams that are just as real as your flight, the deserved destiny greeting you with open arms.
Joy becomes you, every nerve and cell jolted with motivation to simply LIVE-unlike you’ve ever experienced. This is the beginning of a new life, and with just that shred of hope, can be achieved. Despair no more. Now you soar on with confidence; don’t you DARE ever look back, my dearest friend.👣💛👣
