End of the tunnel…

It hurts
It stings
It dries you out
and leaves you

All that time
and energy
the work
the dreams…
all for naught.

It saddens you
beyond the point
of despair
It kills a little
bit of you

All those plans
the vision
the sleepless nights
the wait
those smiles
all for nothing.

It haunts you
mocks you
It makes you
ask a lot of
unanswerable questions
It tests your

You sink to a
new low
A depth you
didn’t know existed
A darkness
so black
That you sense
nothing in its
blinding silence.

But you’re a fighter
a survivor
a stubborn son of a gun
You mope awhile
but then
you dust yourself off
and pull yourself up
back into the

You smell the
crispness of spring
and taste the
You smile back
at the wildflowers
and catch yourself
humming with the
birds fluttering by.

You have another chance
It is another day
And life
has only
just begun.
