Now I know…

Life isn’t easy to explain
As I’ve been through pain
I do struggle and thrive
In this fight to survive

Though I breathe and I think
Though I eat and I drink
The pressure pulls me down
And I am nearing to drown

But I have a reason
To live through this season
A reason to hope
That helps me to cope 

And while there is light
I continue my fight
After all these trial
One day I’ll prevail

As I look back and see
It was always me
The journey was long
But now I am strong

I stand here at last
It’s all in the past
Now I know, to struggle is a blessing
And life still has it’s meaning

  5. Such a beautiful and moving piece, dear Preeths. This one touches me so, as it speaks so well to what we all face as human beings, and living inside of the issues and problems, is the choice, as you so eloquently relate to us, to choose, to keep going, get back up, and move forward. I love this poem, my dear friend. ❤❤❤
