"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." -Martin Luther King Jr.


Purple Oceans swell around my feet,
the tide pulling me into its foamy depths,
down, under the waves I fall,
head no longer above the surface,
but plunged into the purple-tinted waves.
The green seaweed of Envy grasps at my ankles,
in an attempt to pull me back to shore,
a terrible, sandy shore, turned black with Depression,
red with Hatred.
From every branch of every tree hanging into the water,
a monster of my Past swings,
haunting me,
shouting out those Secrets better left conceiled.
But my body has materialized into those crested waves,
just an illusion,
a reflection,
of who I used to be.
And so I swim,
through that purple ocean of Hope,
towards the distant yellow mountains of Happiness;
towards a rose-colored shore where Love blooms,
Wild and Untouched;
toward the pale blue in a sky of Diamonds,
sparkling with Laughter.
Swimming,
in a purple ocean,
allowing the waves to swallow me,
and carry me into that distant land,
Worry Free.

There's hope at the end of the tunnel... or ocean, or whatever you're struggling in. Even if it doesn't seem that way, there is always hope.
