This is the very first poem I write in 2014 and it basically summarizes my entire 2013 and how I want to live from now on. It feels so great to learn from your own experiences and feel stronger. Life gets you down, it'll swallow you whole and it'll play you like a YoYo; I learned the hard way. Yet, there's always a little light in your life, and even though that little light might not ease your mind, it'll help you to get at least through the night. Beautiful memories, loyal friends, loving family members, goals and dreams... there's always a little light. So, next time, instead of letting darkness drown you, remember, even though you don't know what will happen tomorrow, tonight, just follow the light. I hope you can relate to it.

All alone in this room;
surrounded by the gloom.
My mind, so unable to speak,
letting me know I’m oh so weak.

And I can hear them fall apart;
the few remainders of my heart.
They make a piercing sound,
as they fall to the ground.

But on the wall there’s a little hole,
letting in the light that darkness stole.
And even though it’s a little light,
it’s enough to make it through the night.

I do not know if by tomorrow,
I will still feel this empty sorrow.
Maybe this light won’t make me tough
but for tonight it’s just enough.

And I will cry another day;
Someday my dues I’ll have to pay.
Through the hole it shines so bright;
so tonight I’ll just follow the light.
