And there is sadness and

And there is sadness and regret and remorse


There are times when it feels as if your world is collapsing on your own two shoulders.

That "I'll never be successful" "I will never get over my fear of heights" "I'll never stand up for myself"

"I'll never love myself"

Seems so real 

But Never is a big word just like


No one is Always happy

So how can someone Always be sad? 

No one can Never be sad

No one can Never be happy

No one can Always Never be 

but Will

A realistic word

Empowered with determination 

A Will to survive

A Will to become a better person

A Will to be 

Don't strive for Always. Don't strive for certainty 

Strive for practicality.

Strive for a WIll
