To the one left behind

To the one left behind

I never thought that this girl would survive
I never thought that my lips would curl up to a smile
Not ever again, till the world comes to an end
But then, I never thought I'd be endangered
Groping for a reason to live
Breathing in fear,
Swimming in self- doubt
Each new day fills me with terror
Will I survive? Will I survive?

I clasped on to the rope of Life
Will I survive? Will I survive?
My mind can't contain the fright
The memories wash in with turbulence
Will I survive? Will I survive?
The fear has stripped off the last of my might
My mind was the only thing I had
But then came a tide
A convulsion in my mind
I was left alone to bleed dry

And the last thought that came to my mind
Before everything went blank
Will I survive? Will I survive?


Hello Clovers, hope you enjoyed the poem. I wrote this about a year ago with quite a lot on my mind. Fast forward to this day, I can still relate to the exact thoughts that inspired them. Though I can say I’m a little different now, I’m not exactly where I want to be but I sure am working on it.

So dear Clovers, keep pushing through, keep moving forward. Don’t doubt yourself, you will survive and make it through.
