hopelessness overcome

I felt the hopelessness in my heart

Everything I tried was falling apart

All my dreams and aspirations were lying on the ground

Not one glimmer of hope was to be found.

I felt the weight of it dragging me down

I tried to scream but made no sound

I felt at the point of no return

All the bridges I had burned

How do we get to this point in life?

When we no longer have the will to fight.

I think there is something in the air

Creating this hopelessness and despair.

I know this is something that many go thru

And fighting this feeling I had to do.

So I went outside and looked to the sky

And watched the clouds just floating by

If the clouds can move so quickly and make the grey skies blue

Then it’s something that I must do.

So I took a deep breath – and lo and behold to my surprise

Everything disappeared before my eyes.

Then I realized that sometimes the environment that we are in

Can create a feeling where you just can’t win.

So just change the location of where it began

Then that hopeless feeling you’ll understand.
