Time Stands Still

How do I go on
when all seems lost?
How does each day begin
and end
when time seems to
stand still?
When to step outside
to see what the world offers
what life can give
the ups
the downs
the in-between
seems like a step into
Hell?
I watch from hidden windows
wishing
praying
that one day I can break free
from this pain
that keeps me
inside
drags me under
suffercates
so once again
I can see a horizon
I can breathe
I can take that step
and live.
