Today's  Struggle

Today's Struggle

A Story by Ladyminista

About when a person deals with struggle. At the end, it's death.


Yesterday I was just fine. Today you came into my life. My life hasn't been the same. There has been doubts, pain, and struggle. Struggle to succeed. Struggle to become. Struggle to move forward. Did you bring this in my life? What am I to learn from this? Why are you here?
A world of ups and downs! I hate my life right now! I can't seem to get ahead. There is no shift! There is no moving! Tear after tear, but still no movement. What's wrong? Is it me? Am I allowing myself to stand still?

I'm married. Happily, I thought. Children. Yes. How can depression hit me like this? How could I allow this to come upon me? So many questions. But who do I turn to? God has stopped listening! There is no justice for peace. My heart drowns as my soul aches. There is no peace for my mind.

Prayer is constant but still no peace. Prayer is existing, but still no end. I'm looking and waiting on you. Can you please help me. Tears are ever flowing . Words cannot express what I feel. Down and down I'm sinking.can someone hear me? I'm tired! I'm tired! I'm tired! I need you, yes you eases me. One by one, I indulge in you. You take my mind off what's really real. Like a poison I drank you, until I feel nothing left. Flatline is my soul. No life left to give. So, there can be none taken.

There are so many who I know this piece resonates with Ladymin and it has gotta go straight to the heart of everyone reading. We have all felt this sense of hopelessness that only one person could make move. You put a lot of emotions and angst in this right. Good read girl.
