Because of He

My life was a whirlwind of suffering, but only within my mind.

My day to day hardships don't always happen in real time.

My life was dark, dead, and dreary.

My life was all of these things unless he was near me.

My life was hell.

Complete and utter less.

My mind telling me to do this, or that.

My heart telling me to do the other.

My school work falling.

My family life falling.

My own life falling like a dead leaf from a tree in Autumn.

He helped change that.

He helped me realize that the darkness in my mind wasn't just mine.

That others shared the dark thoughts.

That others shared the never ending worry too.

Not everyone is lucky like me.

Without He I would probably no longer be.

My life was fading, faster and faster, into an ultimate disaster.

Until I became one with He.

My past relationship from a year ago helped my depression none.

It helped my Anxiety none.

It helped my PTSD none.

My family helped some;

When they weren't too busy in their own lives probably more complicated than mine.

All because of He I am who I am today.

A year ago I was messier than a garbage dump.

All I did was sit on my rump and feel my own pain and sorrow.

All because of He I get to see today and tomorrow.

He helped me feel love, trust, and light.

He lead me out of the darkness and into the abyss.

A year ago I didn't know true happiness.

My life a year ago would never be,

If it wasn't for my love of He.
