The extreme desperation is making you feel
Like you shouldn’t have started. You feel you cannot
Follow through with your program. In deep depression
You remain, and your constant facial expression
Is one of misery. You give it all you’ve got,
But so far, things have not been the cherished ideal.
In the darkest of darkest valleys you reside.
What you need is hope. Beautiful things can come from
Your conundrum and all of its broken pieces.
Push on through until the moment’s torment ceases.
Keeping your thoughts on track will alleviate some
Of the negative self-talk which doesn’t help you.
It’s okay to be scared or to cry, but it’s not
To give up. This is not the end. It matters how
You are going to finish. You can completely
Mess your life up, then turn it around easily,
But you have to keep going. You must not allow
The present to keep you in a terrible spot.
Your great life is ahead of you. It’s not behind.
Everything that you’re going through is preparing
You for what you have asked for. A work in progress
Is you life, and the key to your true happiness
Is to trust in the process and be more caring
About how you are feeling and your state of mind.
