Weakness Is Not Strong - Poem by Lyn Paul

When
You feel
Like Jumping off Sydney Harbour Bridge
Your stomach
Infested with sharks
Your sleep
Disrupted
Worrying
When
Darkness sees no wrong
Too much
Taken from you
Yet you know
Your journey
Changes lives
Every single day
So
Change your own life
Do for you
What you do for others
Remind yourself
Of others pain
Be proud for survival
The sun can shine everyday
Let no one
Take your sun
When you thought
It couldn't get worse
Yet it has!
Remind yourself
Weakness
Is not strong
Hope is.

    Hope? Where would any of us be without hope?
    Your journey
    Changes lives
    Every single day.................. If you can have a positive effect on just one person then your life is worthwhile.
    Journey on and trust in the future.
    A meaningful message here Lyn. Well done.

    'Be proud of your survival'-very important. When you are living on the edge, hope is strong.
    Hope is stronger than despair. M. Walker.
