You’re Alive

Some days you’ll feel like giving up,
Or wish you could hide away and never return,
On days when the shadows are overwhelming you,
When ominous clouds block any glimpse of sunlight,
On days when nothing feels right,
Get up. Breathe. 
Breathe again…and breathe deep
Feel it. 
You’re alive…

On days when you are sinking,
You don’t know if you have the strength to go on,
Someday life will be unreasonably hard…
Harder than you ever imagined or expected,
Pushing you to the point of exhaustion,
Get up. Breathe. 
Breathe again…and breathe deep
Feel it. 
You’re alive…

When every portion of your life is daunting,
When you feel like a misfit in your surroundings,
Can’t put your finger on the why…
Feeling empty…exhausted…done…!!
Hang on…! Hang on to one tiny little flicker of hope, and,
Get up. Breathe. 
Breathe again… and breathe deep
Feel it. 
You’re alive…

You feel you are too broken to be fixed,
That your mind is a mess,
An irreparable damage is done,
Like a flowing river
Nothing ever stays the same in this world, so,
Get up. Breathe. 
Breathe again…and breathe deep
Feel it. 
You’re alive…

Let the pain sink in,
Acknowledge it,
Sadness is not a sign of weakness,
Carefully consider the thoughts you choose to believe in,
And, you begin to heal again, hence,
Get up. Breathe. 
Breathe again… and breathe deep
Feel it. 
You’re alive…

Don’t give in…. not yet,
Hold on, for as long as you need, 
Just don’t let go,
You can never ever be permanently broken,
Let your soul heal itself, so,
Get up. Breathe. 
Breathe again… and breathe deep
Feel it. 
You’re alive…
