The Promise

Updated: Feb 8


after the bang

you think you are dead

you feel absolutely alone, trapped, forever

you scream for help and no one can hear you

your voice gets carried by the wind and evaporates

You stand alone filled with despair

It's hopeless, no one can save you

they can't even hear you

you resign to a life of perpetual hell

you sleep, then wake up

an endless, torture filled, cycle

on repeat for eternity..it seems

you carry on, motivated by nothing at all

then one day you wake up

and for no particular reason, you feel ok

the next day, you feel good

the following day, you feel great

the day after that, you feel powerful

now you know what it was for

the promise was given at birth

you can survive anything

life is beautiful again.
