Night terrors

The darkest night

May cause distress,

Leave us losing

Our self belief,

In shadows we see

All our fears looming,

See our flaws begin to grow,

Threatening our stability 

Increasing our fragility,

Causing doubts to undermine,

The sanity of our clouded mind,

That during darkness loses grip

And causes us to irrationally think,

That all the walls are closing in

And our self love now counts for nothing.

Come the daybreak and a new dawn

Hope will spring eternal again

But until that time when the sun will rise

We suffer in the dark of night,

Wrestling our demons in a constant fight,

To keep it together but feeling frail

And ensure we don’t go of the rails.
