You are here, stuck in this place.
Millions of thoughts going through your mind.
Minutes, days or even weeks going by,
But you’re still here.
You want to be out,
Living your life, enjoying time with your family.
What can you do?
How can you do it?
How long will it take?
Yes, I know those thoughts, I know the feelings.
I know the struggle.
The hopelessness, anger and even emptiness.
You’re doing all you can, if not more,
Even though it doesn’t lead you anywhere.
At least not now, not yet.
What else can you do?
I don’t know.
It will come to you in its own time.
And when the time comes, you’ll know it.
Whatever you do, keep going and don’t lose hope.
Don’t give up.
Kick, bite, shout or cry,
Throw stuff at the wall if you feel like it.
Let your anger out.
Don’t keep it to yourself.
Show what you feel.
And then go and fight again.
You know what the first step to win is?
I’ll tell you…
It’s the ability to lose.
