Held Down

July 27, 2018

Years of being held down
By the heavy rocks of life
Never being able to move them enough to enjoy the happiness. 

Until one day
Clear out of the blue
A song lifted my mind
Into a whirlwind of emotions. 

To overcome I must
The sorrows of the past,
The fears of tomorrow,
The sadness of today. 

For the sake of myself 
For the sake of my spouse
For the sake of my children

To overtake the feelings,
A weight so heavy within

I must keep fighting until I have no fight left beyond the life in front of me. 

Shine, I must through the heartaches, the pain, the turmoil
That seizes my nuclear being. 

Rise above and grow strong
Through the winds pushing me along in this world of which I fight

For the sake of myself 
For the sake of my spouse
For the sake of my children

I will rise beyond the strength I found so hard to achieve
To overcome the misery my mind tries to hold on to so tight. 

Like a mother clinging to her infant not wanting the world to crumble the joy which has yet to be experienced.

With the light within my soul I shall climb the walls holding me back attempting to lead me into a dark and horrifying corner. 

For the sake of me
For the sake of my spouse
For the sake of my children

I will rise. I will grow. I will shine
