Reflections peering back at me
Dark reflections, the ones that haunt
Make me wonder at times
How your mind & body will go into survival mode
To give you enough bravery to save yourself.
At that moment you are at your end
Thinking there is no more life to give
Oh, but there certainly is.
That’s when you know that you have to find a way.
No matter how, no matter what
Then to much avail you’re given a gift.
The gift of the release
All those days trapped.
Wondering how or why
Are soon to be counted as a blessing
Reflections such as those make me wonder.
That fear of the unknown, that has guided you that far.
Showing you it will then guide you farther.
I used to think it was just part of me
I know it isn’t just me.
It’s many of us.
Some make it out
Sadly others do not
Not knowing who to trust
Not knowing when to trust
I used to think learning lessons forced upon me, were bad.
They were supposed to be in my path
To make me feel that way
For reasons unbeknownst at the time
You had to be present for
Reflections are not always bad
They are necessary.
To reach your highest good.
Be thankful you have been blessed.
