Poetry and prose to ignite the soul: I see you happy

I see you there, behind that cloak of doubt.
Making out your fine and shutting the world out.

I see you there, beneath those swathes of pain.
Holding it together, so you can make it through the day.

I see you there, drowning in their expectations.
Giving of yourself, with no chance of salvation.

I see there warn away by hope now lost.
Sacrificing your dreams, but at what cost.

I see your potential, I see your chance to grow.
I see that happy person you once used to know.

I promise they are waiting there for you to take the time,
to find yourself once more unbound and happy in this life.

I see you.
