Hi again, dear reader. The title of today's poem is ;. Yes, you read that correctly. It is a semi-colon. The Semi-Colon Project is a worldwide group of people who's stories have not ended. It is a mental health organization whose members quite often will sport a semi-colon tattoo. I have a tattoo on my wrist. And now I have a poem. My story will not end.  Please enjoy.

A maelstrom of emotions
took over
my already fragile mind.
What was expected  
to comfort
turned into a message
of despair.
As I dangled over
the precipice of damnation,
my handhold slipped;
I felt myself falling.

Yet, a new foothold was found.
A conscious effort
to ignore the hurt
caused me to land softly
on a bed of determination.

Although I may be weak,
this devil driven fear
will not cause my ruin.
I will continue to fight;
my story
will not end.
