darknessandlight

On and on

Plagued by never-ending anxiety and doubts

Lost in a wasteland of depression and loneliness

Cut deeply and endlessly by memories of a shattered past

Always aimlessly adrift, seeking safety and sanctuary

Ever pointlessly praying for even a small reprieve

Gazing in the mirror wondering if I'll ever be worthy

Still my abused heart beats on and on

    Know that you are worthy and deserving of happiness. Next time you pass a homeless person. talk to them if even for a short time and you both will feel more worthy. And give them a small alms (if you can). They really appreciate socks so maybe carry a few pairs of them in your car for such a purpose. Excuse me for preaching.

      That is really good advice and I am definitely going to try it. I carry a pocket of almonds with me for the squirrels when I go for walks, so making sure I have socks in the car won't be a problem. I definitely didn't take it as preaching, stay blessed.
