Darkness can fill up the room
In a snap 
A blink perhaps 

When everything changes so quickly 
You can’t catch 

You must stand up 
And face it 
To not be afraid 
Of your own inspiration 

To have guidance 
In going forth 
And facing the sensation 

In visualizing a different view 
A different mindset 
And a different perspective 

To not only see the negative events 
In life 
But to have a difference in experiencing 
The better 

Which life is confusing 
Different experiences and perspectives 
We may interpret the world 

That life is a gift 
A treasure 
Moments we must cherish 
And it’s up to you 
To change it
