Your mercy overwhelms me
This world cruel and unfair
Where shadows are like rays of light
There is a glimmer of hope and rectitude
It hails from the kindness of man
Even in the darkest night the moon can cast a shadow
And so, when times have been dark
I have seen the darker side of myself
And of humanity.
Even in the brightest day there are dark rooms
And so, I have seen times of hardship
Even in the hottest day there is snow covered mountains
And so, I have seen days with warmth and bitter cold.
Times when my spirit has splintered like ice.
Even the biggest grin can have a grimace within.
And so, I have learnt not trust wholeheartedly.
Although I have learnt to release my defences
As life is too short to not roll back the guise.
So, what of me now?
Well I guess I say I can smile
But the pressure on my lips is mounting
Will the frown commence
Or will one have victory over the shadows of depression once and for all?
Though a hollow victory it may be...
As after all
The dark rooms still exist
The snow covered mountains
And the shadows cast by the moon.
