Just Look...

Poetry Dec 14, 2017

Depressed, are you? Sad, are you not? The year is ending…goals left unachieved but you are not alone
Disappointed, are you?
Discouraged, are you not
another year over… still no job
Look around… you are not alone..

Dejected, are you?
Sorrowful, are you not?
another year gone…taking with it a loved one…
You are not alone

Frustrated, are you?
Tired, are you not?
a year older…yet unmarried
You are not alone

Resigned, are you?
Given up, have you not?
with so much hope you began
Yet, the year ends with hope dwindling

Nothing to be thankful for, you think
no achievement… no strides
Hope lost…nothing but darkness
Convinced that light will never return

We are here… you are not alone
Darkness but for a while…
light will return
Know… there is always hope

Hold on… we are with you
Look up… look around
Look for cracks in the wall of hopelessness
Light is there…You just have to look.
