Astray

One bad thought and down the rabbit hole I go.

Darkness.

I fell into a pit of misery, self-doubt and lies.

I begin to sink into it like quicksand.

I see no way out.

Fear kicks into overdrive.

Sharp objects surround me.

Should I just end it because I see no way out?

Should I hold on to hope that I will find my way out?

Decisions, decisions.

I let the negative thoughts fester like a septic wound.

With every passing moment, the likelihood of survival plummets.

The darkness becomes alluring, seducing my mind.

My thoughts approach the point of no return.

Suddenly, I begin to have visions.

Visions of those I love unconditionally.

Light.

I feel the pain they would feel if I let this be my demise.

If I gave up, without a fight.

Then I did the unthinkable…

I called out for help.

And just like that, I was saved.
