Giving Hope a Chance


It was the dolphins swimming just under the surface, that spoke to her,

somehow their joy lifted her, she loved their jumping.

As she breathed in the ocean, she sighed

heavily as she searched in her purse.

It was a dumb idea really,

she took out the sleeping pills,

looked at the bottle,

one more time

and tossed it

into the ocean.


For today at least, she wanted to live,

she hoped silently

it would


worth it.

  1. Hm… Maybe not such a good idea to toss the sleeping pills in the ocean, however, tossing them in the garbage is a good idea, I get what you mean, though… she decided to live. 🙂
