Scary…. Yes it is..
And when someone knows how scary it is, the desire to run away becomes the immediate response.
Well, sadly,for some of us,there is no other choice but to walk through that path no matter how scary or unsettling it may seem.
The sad thing is, some brand us to be the ones who desire to stay within the path. Some wrongly accuse us of doing this to our selves. Some say “just get out of it” and believe that it is really as simple as that. BUT THE TRUTH IS IT ISN’T.
Some taunt us, smiling, some even laughing at our expense. Calling us crazy, weak and unstable…
FOR those who do not understand, and those who refuse to understand…. LET ME WALK YOU THROUGH….
Imagine a sun shiny day full of hope and promise of happiness. You set your plans, you embrace the possibilities that would bring you a better light or even perhaps a better life.
Then with such positivity, you step out and think that everything will be fine… then you realize one thing- nothing is permanent, even the sunshine sometimes decides to hide after its grand presentation.
From that warmth, you suddenly feel the cold breeze that immediately darkens everything and dampens your skin. You get confused. Everything seems okay with everyone, while your walls are falling apart and no one notices but you on your own. Your face changes, but no one notices what you are seeing. Because in your head, everything is real.
You begin to drive yourself away because you do not want to be branded and yet you experience that very thing you avoid. People begin to judge you. teach you how to do it, when they have no idea what is going through your head.
You break apart, but nothing seems to make sense because not one cares to listen, not one cares to understand.
Go on… laugh, by all means, dictate to us how we should be strong and just forget the past so we move on further……
But then, WILL you LET ME WALK YOU THROUGH this path and let you experience the real ghosts in our heads and make you see the real fears that are bigger than us from which we cannot run away from……. Then TELL ME THE SAME THINGS YOU TELL ME……
WOULD YOU BE STRONG ENOUGH TO FACE THE GHOSTS WE FACE EVERY DAY AND EVERY NIGHT AND STILL SURVIVE JUST TO SEE THE SUN SHINE THOUGH FOR A FEW MINUTES AND BRING US THE HOPE WE NEED TO LIVE?
