Looks for

Hope when she

Is in pain. But hope

Seems to run away because 

You can't find something if you

Don't believe in it. She starts to lose

Her battle against her misery. The voices

In her head tell her she has lost, she needs

To give up the fight. She believes the voices

And begins to say her goodbyes. Just as she

Is about to pull the trigger, she see's a light

Of hope as she closes her eyes. The people

She will leave behind are in the back

Of her mind. Slowly, hope creeps

Around the corner to save

Her one last time.
