Listen,
Every year starts and ends with winter
There's nothing you can do about that

I know it's frustrating
To step out of your house
And see the path you just paved
Covered in snow

But please, be patient

Because the more snow you pile up,
The greener your grass will be
In the spring
In which I am once again culturally insensitive for the sake of making a 'pretty' comparison.
south of the equator every year starts and ends with summer but that wouldn't sound as nice would it
I mean I know there's beauty in every season but come on if you had to choose a season to represent hardship which would you choose?


I guess you could say this is my second submission for suicide awareness week, but really this is just for anyone having a hard time and that needs a lift. Not everyone struggling wants to die. But they're still struggling.

My message to them is keep fighting, because it will get better.

Time isn't just a placebo.

It's a miracle cure.

EDIT: HOLY CRAP.
SO UH I JUST CASUALLY NOTICED THIS IS ON THE FRONT PAGE?
THAT'S THE FIRST TIME THAT'S EVER HAPPENED TO ME WITH MY POETRY.
THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH
I LOVE YOU.

This is really good. The notion that bad experiences make good one seem better is a very complex idea of contrast in real life and how we perceive things. Sometimes you create some things with great intellectual depth.

I am ashamed to say I did not even know it was suicide awareness week. This is lovely.

You are a writer. You have creative license to say the year begins and ends with winter. You are speaking metaphorically more than anything, and that is where you are trying to get your message across. Even if I lived in Australia, this would have the same impact.

Absolutely lovely, dear. :hug:

I think it's the perfect comparison.
Winter makes me slow down and think about things. Sometimes I feel like I'm frozen in place and waiting for the heat to come back and melt me.
