To Whom It May Concern

To Whom It May Concern

A Poem by Light

To whom it may concern
I want you to know that I've learned
How to be happy once more
I am no longer blank to life's beautiful allure

At least I think I have
And writing here has helped
I was able to describe
All of the hell I had felt

I no longer want to die
And no longer cut my veins
Grown from someone so depressed
Into what I am today

Although, I still find trouble
In letting people in
Where I once loved so quickly
The process just fails to begin

I hope it fades with time
And I can learn to trust
I'll figure out how to stop pushing away
Before heart turns to rust

But perhaps it has
And Oddly... That's okay
I'm more okay with being alone
Loneliness fades each day

Not because of companionship
But I'm used to the feeling
And as sad as that sounds
It's ment to have a melancholy meaning

I don't care if I'm numb
Or may love again some day
I can look to the future
And be alone happily

I hope this poem
Brings those it may concern some relief
I no longer feel stricken
With everlasting grief

I will live my life
And I will succeed
I can love myself
And that's all I really need

My name is Eric
This was my hell
I hope it has helped
People who also fell

I want those depressed to know
That you aren't alone
Yes, you reading this
I know because I've grown

From the same relatable pain
So believe me: you can be happy again!
And you WILL see life in all it's beauty
If you stick through it to the end
