If you feel like you are at the heart of a storm,
Ghastly place – there is no way out, no escape,
Nothing is left for you to hold on to,
Sadness is washing over you,
Hope has sailed away,
If not to others,
Look within yourself.
Go to a place where you will find strength.
Do something that will bring you comfort.
Watch something that will make you laugh.
Read something that will lift up your spirits.
Life can seem unfair,
But you too can take control,
And row your way back to the shore.
Even if the main mast backing up your sail
Has just been torn apart by the roughest winds
You have ever faced, you are stronger than you think
You are. You can and you will set foot, tread on land again.
