|This poem was written during
a very dark period of my life as I was starting to feel better. Once
I was able to write to words down, I knew I would start feeling better.
I have included it in the hope that by reading about these common feelings you will realize that it is possible to find your own strength and survive.
I have shared these words with families of those who have committed suicide, as a way of helping them to understand just how dark sometimes it can get.
My light and my life
I stand precariously
I remain tenuously balanced
No path in sight,
In complete blackness
A light appears before me
This force surges through my
But in falling, I discover
With new courage, my own light,
