Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game

Take hold of the darkness, step into the light

Let go of your worries, dont give up the fight,

Each day is a balance of the good and the bad,

For a moment of joy you must also feel sad.

But the demons and darkness that live in your mind,

Eyes glowing red are no fears of mine,

I've stood in the darkness, kept hold of the light

Not for a moment did I ever lose sight.

The monsters and nightmares are never too strong.

Hear my voice, keep moving on.

For darkness can't win unless you end this war

If that were to happen you'd be here no more.

Though it may feel hopeless, don't give it a thought.

In times of darkness, the strongest are sought.

Look over your lifetime, the dark forest within.

See the seeds of hope that you've been given?

Bursting forth from the darkness inside,

They bring you glory, have nothing to hide.

When all hope seems lost, my darling and friend.

Always look back, for you can't see the end.

"Why do you keep hiding behind your mask,
When even the scars formed by your mistakes
are you own constellations?"

" the monsters and nightmares are never too strong", I needed to hear that. This poem made me feel so balanced inside.
