I've posted this thing several times on various other pages, but here it is again. Originally I wrote this thing at the end of high school and at the time it held a great amount of personal meaning. Now I post it as a remembrance of that time in my life.

THE POWER OF LOVE

I'm standing here at the edge looking down at the world below ...That world below me, it feels seems so small..... Yet how do I know?...........The people in the streets below look so small running about their lives, doing what they think is right , what they have to do. Just as I used to do. I wonder when I was down there with those people did I look so small? What is real and what is fake? I no longer know for I've lost all sense of self. I think back to when I was younger how I loved to hope and dream.......The happiness and freedom of youth....Is that what I seek now more then anything? And furthermore I wonder did such a thing ever exist? Or am I only dreaming yet again  of the things I'll never find? As I think these thoughts under the starless sky I look down again, and wonder what it is like to die..... All time stops just for a moment as I prepare to jump....... I wonder briefly will it hurt a lot to die? Probably I tell myself , but the pain of death is nothing compared to the pain in my soul. For I am all alone lost in a never ending nightmare that refuses to release my soul, as it shreds slowly bit by bit to fade away to almost nothing...... I am all alone the rain pours down from the sky echoing the pain,and loss in my soul. Not the loss of one I once loved..... For I know no such pain....... The pain I feel is the pain of lost dreams and faded hopes dashed in an instant as I realize how shallow and pointless my life has been. I look down one last time at the world I'm about to depart,and I wonder  was it worth it all in the end? Would I have done things differently give the chance? Would things have changed at all if I had? Is it even possible to know the answer to those questions?..... I think not and that is what has brought me here to this ledge.I feel utterly lonely.... I cry out to any that may hear my last shout of pain...Yet I know no ones listening,and even if they were I doubt they would really care...... For I'm alone,or so I believe with all my heart....My foot leaves the ground, and I think this will be the end. The end of my pain.....But then suddenly I feel you there beside me as I'm about to fall....Reaching out for me pulling me back to you're side. Holding me close. Tho I cry, kick, and scream the pain in my soul overwhelming me at last. Then slowly I stop,as I realize I'm not alone and never have been. For you are with me at the end. My shield from the stones of pain that life throws my way..... I know now with all my heart I can now go back down to the world below... And I know I'm not alone anymore. I know now I will live again,with you by my side.... And I wonder is this the power of love? Something I never thought existed till now? The answer is time will tell........

THE  END
