Tell your #AlwaysKeepFighting story, a poem for Jared Padalecki by Tracy Diane Miller

I have kept myself hidden
For the years haven’t always been kind
Depression a needy companion
So jealous to occupy my mind

I look at myself in the mirror
A reflection of a lifetime of regret
At night I awake to torment
The memories of pain I can’t forget

I sit in a room alone
To talk with my Muse
I feel safe writing poetry
Self preservation is a good excuse

But you unwrapped your heart
Courage framed your own reveal
I seek to abandon my shadows of doubt
The measured steps towards a way to heal

Jared Padalecki
In person I wish I could meet you to say
Through #AlwaysKeepFighting
You’ve given me the strength
To banish my demons away
