Poem: All Comes Down To Love

I am
Lost in the dark.
Stuck in a funk
Trapped
In a never ending
Downward spiral.
I claw
I struggle
I aim
To grow better.
To overcome
To master
My own
Body and mind.
Yet always I fall short
Become convinced
I’m doomed
Always to fail.
Never achieving
Society’s expectations.
Then
Through the darkness
Speaks the voice
Of the Lord
“It all comes down to love”.
At those words
My heart feels peace
For through I struggle
To earn wealth
To succeed
In job or career
I know
How to love
To be a friend.
