Darkness replaced by Sunsets….. By L D Wright

Darkness replaced by Sunsets…..

Run all you want when the thunder rumbles, the lightning strikes, the rains going to soak you like the tears you’ve cried.
The dark clouds will gather and block out the sun when your demon starts tapping and sadness comes home.

The chaos of yesterdays sorrows attack, opens up scars like devastating conflicts, redirects your positives to fall upon your knees, alone to wallow in past griefs. The demon lives amongst your darkest thoughts so replace that kind of sadness with smiles you smiled before the sad tones.

Think about the good times, the ones that made you laugh, take your demons poisoned memories and cast them from your mind, walk away looking directly into sunshine. Don’t dwell amongst the shadows, the darkness of your past or the demon comes back tapping and leads you down the sad roads.

When the storm clouds form become the wind that blows away the shadows and leaves you gasping at glorious new horizons. Don’t be afraid to ask for help when it gets a little much, there’s help out there so don’t despair, you simply need to talk like breathing positive thoughts.

I carried my past issues, kept them all inside, broke myself a thousand times, fell more times than I’d liked, screamed in anger. I’ve walked with the demon by my side. Hid myself, buried inside a broken mind, looked into the horrors and stayed way too long. Memorised the lyrics of my saddest song.

Life’s cruel at times, takes what it wants, breaks you every chance it can, learn to look for sunsets, replace your deepest upsets.
Tomorrows going to be a new start a second chance to hit your restart. The demons taps fall silent when the smiles grow out of sunlight.

Learn to smile whilst laughing at your demon, that scavenger of your past misfortunes, if it ever tries to break you then look towards amazing skies of multi coloured sunsets. Learn to cherish your most brilliant smiles, they’ll be your friend when times become dark, look at life like a photograph album, the times you saved for when storm clouds gathered.

Reminise, focus on times you laughed, spread out good events, the smiles you can’t live without. Think about what happened, the moments you couldn’t stop laughing. The dark clouds still gather but some day they’ll break so look to the sunsets at the end of each day, smile at the demon as it fades to a peaceful silence, carry on now that your smiling.

Hi there, I'm Lee, I live in the UK in a small town called Blackburn. If I'm not working in the steel industry or training in karate, I'm out walking and taking pictures. I love taking photos and making them beautiful. I have struggled with depression and anxiety for a very long time. My writing run alongside my issues,  personal pitfalls, and experiences through life. Some experiences sad, some dark, but always honest. I treat my writing as my personal therapist., letting my thoughts out in words. This releases my inner demons and settles my personal head space.

  1. Ridiculously amazing photography, I believe this is all your own too, right?!
    You pair your thought filled writing so well with your choice of sunset … bitter sweet to read and view… but thank you so much.
    Excellent journaling! Perhaps the best I’ve had the privilege to read…
    Your past experiences, despite the pain and losses you have endured now yield a unique beauty of love and devotion only you get to write…
    Your writing is a gift you share with the followers you accumulate here and I look forward to reading how you translate and transform what was once pure raw pain into acknowledgement and acceptance and then beauty and wisdom.
    So glad to meet you and your work.
