To the ones who face a stormy sea,
don’t worry, the storm will pass.
To the ones who are fighting an endless battle,
don’t give up; the end is close in sight.
To the ones who smile, in spite of the tears welling up inside,
I commend your bravery.
To the ones who keep trying to make it through,
you will reach your goal.
To all the ones who try;
try but don’t succeed;
never drop out.
While every day might seem like a nightmare,
every single breath might hurt,
It may seem disheartening, bleak and daunting-
because soon, right in front of you, you’ll see a rainbow.
