A Spark Of Light. Suicidal Tendencies. - Poem by alan brown

Lost in a world of thought
I suffer the indignity of living
While sadness softens my heart
bringing light in a blatant way
to my dreams.

Although life prevails,
every proceeding day
my willingness subsides
As sadness overtakes my mind
in the darkness that overcomes me.

In dyer need I wander
searching my soul.
Wanting but never finding
the need in me.
As the light fades before my eyes.

Darkness willingly takes me
far beyond every thought
that had ever entered my mind
But withing the darkness
a light prevails.

This small spark of light
eases my mind
Bringing solace to my soul
and hope to the living
As time passes me by
but only in my dreams


There are a lot of suicides worldwide
I hope this poem will give them a little light, in the darkness to show them the way
