48-Hour Challenge: Media Prompt - Inspired me to write a 100 line poem.
I'm tryin not to lose my mind;
It's hard to do at times;
I try to leave the past behind,
And look for better days.

Sweetly singing are the birds;
The sun is warm today;
The springtime is approaching,
Filling the air with joy.

Teardrops will begin to fall,
Wipe them from your eyes;
May happiness await you,
Washing hurt away.

Promises made;
Promises broken;
Words aren't spoken;
A new fear is born.

Pray to God each day,
When paranoia comes.
Lift your head up high;
A new day will come soon.
