April 29

I cannot breathe
in this light
that shines
blinding me
pleading with me
to close my eyes
but I will not

I would rather
lose sight
than to miss hope
walking into my life again

so I stand against the light
that shines
and I wait
until the light becomes me

About Melissa Leigh

I believe that every life is full of endless moments that help you, hurt your, change you, inspire you, and allow you to mold yourself into the best version of yourself that you can possibly be. Stories exist in all of us and need to be shared in order to grow.
