Here For The Duration

Still here because sadness is overrated

and given far too much attention when

joy feels better than anything you’d

imagine. Still here because I’m

egotistical enough to believe I matter

to at least a few in this world. Still 

here because my spirit commands a

battle for life against a mind pushing

me into sporadic stupors. Still here

because those beautiful faces appear

in my thoughts to pull me back from

the brink of endless depression. Still

here because love sits at my side and

reminds me in my darkest hours

the light stands in wait for me.
