Life's Punches, Pain, & Confusion

Life throws it's punches

Life fires it's bullets

Relationships fail, friendships crumble

You feel like there's nowhere to go

Why is life so defeating?

It seems like my life has just turned into a living hell

Is down the only direction my life will go?

Life knocks you down

Dirt on your face

Your bones feel fragile

You're whole being feels numb

Is there hope?

I've been told that there is a hope

But I've been knocked down so many times

I feel like I can't answer that question

But then one day I had enough of life knocking me down with it's painful punches

Knocking me down with it's brutal bullets

I had enough of the confusion

I had enough of listening to the lies I would always tell myself

I felt stronger

I felt confident

I then realized that there is hope

So I held onto that hope

The hope that life is painful and complicated

The hope that life does get confusing at times

The hope that I can overcome the pain that life has thrown at me

The hope that I am strong

That I can move forward

I realized that if I believe things wont get better; they won't

But if I believe life will get better; it does

Slowly and gradually life gets better

Life is a battle

It's a roller coaster

A roller coaster of emotions

A roller coaster of joy, pain, heartbreak, success, happiness

Holding onto that truth has given me the strength to continue

The fact that life is hard and isn't easy

That I'm not alone

I'm not the only one experiencing the pain I am;

This hope is what keeps me alive

Holding onto this hope and reminding myself of this fact and hope every single day is what keeps me going day to day

Don't give up hope

Life throws it's punches

Life fires it's bullets

But life will only defeat you if you allow it to

Fight back when life knocks you down

Prove to life and yourself that you are stronger and able to fight back with confidence

Chin up

No pain, no growth
