I close

my eyes and for a moment I feel the peace that I’ve been looking for.

The peace that finally puts me at ease.

No more feeling so lost and hopeless in these moments that define my life and who I am.

Days seem so long only to come to an end so much sooner than I am ready to let them go, I feel like my drive is running on low and even though I need so much more energy to go on.

I still hold on hoping the right words will come out before my head hits the pillow and I am out for the night.

Even though sometimes it is no longer night-time when I go to bed and then soon the light is shining straight at me and sleep has faded from my mind and the day has begun.

Even though my eyes are still tired and my body just doesn’t want to get up, I somehow get back up and start my day in the hope that I will find my way again in this thing called life.
