Despair – Part II

I hunger for your Happiness.

I thirst for your Joy.

I aim to shatter your Confidence.

I yearn to shake your Convictions.

I long to break your Morale.

I wish to crush your Dreams.

I seek to devour all your hope,

and leave you with nothing.

I will consume you,

and you will be mine.

My claws of Misery,

firmly rooted in your core.

You know who I am.

I am Despair.


Despair Part 1 –

Author’s Note:

Always have hope.  Always have faith.  Lest you succumb to this ravenous beast and find yourself swallowed by complete and utter despair.  Even the smallest amount of hope, or faith will keep you going.



The River no longer runs,

Her waters have bled.

The Flowers no longer bloom,

They are withered and dead.

The Sun no longer shines,

Its light has faded away.

The Wind no longer blows,

Leaving nothing to sway.

Cold, dry, and desolate,

A world without life.

All that remains,

Are Cracks in the dirt.

Author’s Note:

Another that can be interpreted in many ways.

What’s your take?  What do you see?



Drowning in a sea of despair,

All my hope is gone.

There is no up or down here,

Just an infinite nothing beyond.

Suspended outside of time,

As time passes me by.

Questioning my existence,

Is my life a great lie?

I’m trying to find my way,

Through the murky haze

Of my mind.

But I am lost…

So lost…

Author’s Note:

Sometimes we lose our way, and become lost.  Trying to figure out where to go next, or what to do as the world keeps turning while we feel stuck.  It happens, but we got to keep going because the world won’t stop for us.  However, there’s always someone who will be there with an extended hand to help us up and along the way.  No matter how lost we feel, we need to keep going, because eventually we’ll find our paths.

Have you ever felt so lost, it was like drowning?

The Ocean

The ocean calls to me:


“Forget the land behind you.

Forget the pain and misery.

Come to me,

And I’ll set you free.

Let me embrace you.

For you are that which I crave.

Come to me,

I’ll show you to your grave.”


The sound of her waves crashing against the shore draws me in.

I sit here and stare out at the dull grey sky, fighting this temptation.  Her pull is strong.  But I am stronger.

Author’s Note:

On some days, I’m tempted to give up.  To give in, and let myself drown.  It’s difficult at times, but I endure.  No one said life would be easy.  Take on one obstacle at a time instead of looking at them all with dread.  The day will come when you look back and realize, you scaled mountains.  And you will know the true strength that you had all along.

We all struggle, some more than others.  What do you do, or say to keep going, when you’re on the brink of giving up?
