    dark, brooding clouds adorn my sky
    absent of birds and other life forms
    that makes one appreciate
    GOD's creation

    i sit on the bottom of a deep well
    looking up...through a chasm of depressed emotions

    how do i escape this
    how can i pull myself up
    through all the rubbish
    dumped on me daily

    loosed... in this deep well of self-defeat
    i've grown content to swim through
    murky corridors of pain and distrust
    learning to accept my fate...without fuss
    no matter how deep my sorrow may be
    i have no comprehension

    coz darkness surrounds me

    drowning in the syrupy-thickness
    of the jealousy raging through me

    do you understand

    can you comprehend the depths of my agony
    ...this sorrow that probes deep in my soul
    robbing me of happiness

    a darkness came over me

    i could not see
    ...could not feel through the blood lust
    that fuels the flames of distrust

    as i sink...ever-deeper
    in this sesspool of misunderstanding
    ...like quicksand
    it steadily pulls at me
    i can't break free

    from the darkness that surrounds me

    only darkness surrounds me

    loneliness crowds my nights
    as emptiness fills my day
    there is no hope for tomorrow.

    how could i see into a future that don't exist
    the thing is
    there are no positives
    ...no ego strokes to soothe the pain of yesterday
    taking two steps back for each one i gain
    that makes me say

    i'm surrounded by darkness

    I'm..............in the darkness

    I am the way, the truth and the light.
    I am there in your darkest night.
    In my presence there is joy evermore.
    I am the answer just beyond the door.

    Let me prove myself to you.
    I am reality through and through.
    If you're searching for something that's real...
    Give your life to me...let me begin to heal.

    I love you more than words will ever say...
    And it's growing each and every day.
    More than anything, you are the one I adore.
    Let me in...don't keep me beyond the door.

    Baller,
    Sometimes we have our darkess hours..
    sometimes the clouds just won't go away
    sometimes the rain follows close behind
    sometimes it seems life just won't change
    when I pray the light peeks thru
    when I smile the clouds give way
    when I give to others the rain stops
    when I claim the victory my life changed..

    We never have to give into the darkness
    its a choice......we just have to choose peace of mind.

    Epiphany :heart:

    wonderful-ly written... deep-ly expressive piece.
    (this proves melancholy can sometimes be beautiful)

    whenever you feel dark-ness surrounding you...
    just remember you are entitled to unlimited
    rayz of SunShyne! :D if there's any day/night/mood
    i can help to brighten... just let me know!

    :heart:
