The Light

Life is known to be a rollercoaster.

We’re all buckled in,

not prepared for the highs that soon turn into lows.

We hold onto the bar,

with our eyes closed,

praying it’ll all be over soon.

There were no warning labels.

None of us are ready for the lowest lows.

We get thrown into negative situations,

not knowing how to catch our breath.

However, regardless of the low,

there will always be a positive to follow.

It my be hard to fathom it,

but there is always light.

It’s a lot easier to fall into the darkness,

than to sit and wait for the light.

Although it may seem easier,

it’s not the solution.

Take my situation as an example.

I was sexually abused by my father.

Many times I wanted to fold into the darkness.

Yet, I didn’t.

And because of that, I made a change.

I stopped him from potentionally doing it again.

I put my voice out into the world.

By doing so,

I not only helped others, but I also saved myself.

I could’ve let the situation define me.

Instead, I used it as a way to make a change.

Life is not perfect, by any means.


The sun will always come back out.

The ride will always go back up,

The light will always out beat the dark.


Hold on to that bar a little tighter.

It’ll be a bumpy ride.

You are a warrior of endless battles.

Whether it’s a battle against someone else,

or yourself.

The only way to become stronger,

is to be tested.

To be put through the worst,

to become the best.

Hold on a little longer.

Just wait a little longer.

Your light is just around the corner.
