Something to Wait For

written by: Rebecca Lombardo

@BekaLombardo

 

Reaching out for something more
Before my mind shuts this door

Until my soul lingers for more
I’ll keep the faith that fills every pore

Why can’t I take this frame
And bend it back again

Will I be lost in this game
Unable to see through the shame

Shadows cast over the light
Which barely braved the darkened night

My question is, how long will you fight
When there’s only this horrid image in your line of site

Am I capable of something more
I’ve never succeeded when keeping score
The sense of loss becomes a chore

When the life you’ve longed for is no more

My name is Rebecca Lombardo and I’m 43 years old. I’ve been happily married for 15 years. I live in Michigan with my husband and cats. I am a published author, a Huffington Post blogger, a contributor for The Mighty, and a podcast host. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at the age of 19. I have battled that as well as several other conditions for over 20 years. In 2013, I attempted suicide. Grateful that I survived, I decided to tell my story in the hopes that I could help others choose a different path.
