You aren't defined by what your situation is, you are defined by how you face the challenges that are given to you.

Please take me away from here,
As the world turns to infinite shadow,
And hope, such a fleeting thing,
Disappears, lost again.

We cannot explain the sorrow
Of losing that one true friend,
Yet we cannot return it
To our hearts.

So let us escape
To a land of our tomorrow,
Where life can once more
Be a friend.

I write this piece with the message that hope may seem to be lost at one time or another for all of us, but we can find it if we hold on. Hope is always the last thing to go, and when we lose it, we've lost the fight already.

Hey Jacen!! I really, reallllllyy like this. I think I like the first stanza the best, but I love the idea of infinite shadows, even in a sad situation, so that's probably why. It's well-written, and I like that it is so short yet manages to get the message clearly across. Nice work :)
