This is powerful. I love the use of bold, italics, underline and capital letters for emphasis.
Darkness echoes out the light
But I won’t give in to night
‘cause I am ever shining bright!
I thrive, I thrive.
Sometimes I lose myself to fear
Forget the need to hold ME dear
But there is not an ending here
Because I thrive! I thrive…
Constant standing strong alone
Leaves me coping on my own
Pressing, breaking, weight unknown
I survive. I survive.
Here surrounded by claimed friends
Who know nothing of my ends
My long Iron willing bends
I’m tired. So tired…
At last asked support is strong
Hands I’ve had there all along
They bring back my happy song
And I thrive! I Thrive.
