Sometimes, I have been desperate and despairing.
Sometimes, sorrow and grief have filled my heart.
There have been times when it all has felt too much.
When I’ve felt so lost, and hopeless, abandoned and alone.
Sometimes, I didn’t want to wake up in the morning.
I couldn’t face the struggle; I had zero energy.
Yet through it all I knew it was worth the fight and tussle.
And I wanted to keep living
Because life is beautiful.
