To Overcome

Location

 To overcome?   You have no idea. The dark is suffocating. The pain is allocating. Try to make it stop. It's not enough. It keeps coming, and coming, and coming. Looking up, praying for better. Why me? Why THIS adversity? We all have them. We can't control them. We must go through things. We must race to better endings. The small things help us overcome. The simple smile, the thought of laughter. One compliment. Overcome the darkness. Help others to overcome. Lift and be lifted. Be the light that shines through the clouds after a stormy day in mid-May.
