It hangs over us like a veil. Thick, heavy and black.
It sticks and it clings and it suffocates us.
Like drowning in treacle, ever-deeper we struggle on.
It blocks out the light, and prevents us from feeling the warmth.
Without light, there is no colour, no beauty, no rainbows, no smiles.
Without the warmth, we are lost, condemned to shiver alone in the dark.
But do you know what? After every darkness comes the sunrise.
The beautiful, beaming, glorious, warming, life-giving sun.
It lights up the shadows, and shows us the beauty all around us.
It warms our body and our heart, and banishes the darkness to memory.
Enjoy the light. Feel the sun. Breathe the air.
Reach out to your friends, you know who they are.
You couldn't see them in the dark, but they were always there.
You might not even have met them yet, but now is the time.
Get outside. Unplug. Switch off. Let the breeze tickle your skin.
Feel the raindrops run down your cheeks, dance, and smile.
Kick off your shoes, curl your toes in the grass - IT WORKS!
It's not about health, It's not about medication. It's not about religion.
It's about being human, It's about being strong. It's about being you!
Finding yourself again. Embracing the light. Banishing the dark.
The darkness will return, it always does.
But next time - you'll be ready.
And so too will the sunrise, it's just around that corner.
