I Will Live

Today, the word prompts for OctPoWriMo were 'risk, revolutionary, reawaken, reclaiming', while the 'feeling' words were 'courageous, energetic, liberated and spirited'. I don't know if I fully completed the theme as was outlined, but that's ok. I still wrote. Here then, is my 4th poem this month. Please enjoy.

I took a risk,
dipped into
a huge vat of

Admitting weakness,
hinting at illness
is not an easy
road to travel.

Some understand,
but they are few.

Most scoff, believing
nothing of the torment
a mind can go through.

Yet in the darkness
of a soul’s revolution,
there is a light
which direct’s one’s eyes
to a way of peace.

Be that what it may
for you,
I have found
my strength.

His name
is Jesus.

With him by my side
and his Spirit in
my heart
I will fight.

I will be liberated 
from this dank cell 
of depression.

I will rejoice.
I will be free.
I will live.
