Darkness invaded my life
Bringing with him distress and strife
Like an unexpected thief
Robbing me of all hope
And leaving me with nothing but grief.
Out of anger I cried
Something in me had died
But a ball of hope within my soul
Ignited my spirit and made me bold
To fight to smile to conquer it all
Will never fall
I rise again with strength anew
I stand affirmed with a positive view
I shout and vow triumphantly
Over darkness I have the victory.

I wrote this to encourage others who have been struck by sickness or death or are just going through a period of turbulence knowing that we can rise above it no matter how hard it may seem.
"Life's not as bad as it may seem, if you open your eyes to what's in front of you."
