I look around me and all I see is destruction, pain, anger and helplessness
I look around me and I try my hardest to find the light through the darkness
I try to convince myself that the light is there despite how hard it is to see it
As I continue searching for that light, I try not to be numb but sympathetic
I try not to turn a blind eye but instead be informed, no matter how heartbreaking
I look around me and I just want to scream my hopelessness in the face of the mounting tragedies that keep on coming, but I refuse to give up!
I will keep hoping, I will keep dreaming and I will keep on getting back up!
I will persevere!
