As I sit once again with a heavy heart,
I feel weighed down by my problems.
I am enclosed in a self imposed cage,
Created by the negative forces present.
Behind the insecurities and depression,
I know things of beauty and joy exist.
The good requires effort and searching,
I won't find any positivity by accident.
In order to see the true picture of life,
I must be willing to search and dig deep.
There is more than seen at first glance,
Like an iceberg floating in the ocean.
The tip is the obvious aspects of life,
Which at times appear to be negative.
Below the surface is a hidden beauty,
Covered up by the blight of darkness.
Life is more than my problems and I,
A multitude of others live in my society.
We all claim a common address here,
As human members of the planet Earth.
To retain humility and a sense of reality,
I must be in touch with good and evil.
Both reside within and outside of me,
The world is like a ying yang symbol.
I just want relief from the sadness,
Caused by my problems and issues.
Hopefully changing my prospective,
Can help rescue me from my prison.
