Never Let Me Go — I saw the movie years ago and it just resonated. The need to pour it all out– exhaust everything—and just scream.
The maze will try and trap you
It will wrap you in vines and try to bind you
The labyrinth is deep and winding
And your secret fear is that no one will find you
You will scream… “Why, God! What else can you throw at me?”
And you will not hear the replies you need
Your voice is horse and your throat is sore
And you feel you can’t take much more
But then, you feel the beat of your heart
And you realize, this isn’t the end…this is the start
Through the screams and through the cries
You see that you still have breath and you did not die
You are alive
And you have survived
The path is long and it is still not clear
But you are here!
Thank God, you are still here!
I wrote this poem to share and give perspective and encouragement to anyone who is dealing, fighting, and/or recovering…stay strong and don’t give up.
And if you need to scream … then scream … because it proves you are still alive.
