Libby Ralph - Beside me
I am Libby and this is my poem called “Beside me”.
Good luck to everyone fighting and remember, we can do it! We can find ourselves again.
My journey began when the light turned out
As the darkness grew and all hope was lost
But I was okay because I had control
With everything beside me.
I had to go longer and starve my mind
My body became weak and began give up
All that I was and all that I had faded in a heartbeat
With few who knew beside me.
I let myself die a slow painful death
I didn't even realise the damage
The endless pain ,fear and terror tortured me
With no one to hold beside me.
That's when I realised I had to be helped
I shouldn't be afraid anymore
Some days we're still dark but I struggled along
With the ones to never gave up beside me.
The light switched on and I found myself again
I am now strong ,brave and worthy
So it's time to start living my life
With the whole world beside me.
