A Difficult Journey

Hey guys! Day 4(?) of the IntroToPoetry challenge from WordPress, and today’s prompt was Journey. Instead of taking what could have been the easy road and writing about my physical travels I’ve recently embarked on, I wanted to stay true to my blogging origins and talk about my journey of recovery.


From a dark and twisted place she comes,


Running from the place where negativity hums.

It consumes her- the sun never comes out,

And she is alone, filled with dread and doubt.

Though she knows if she can fight just one more day,

She herself can make the bad go away. 

And learn to live in positivity and comfort,

In a place where gnarly thoughts can’t hurt her.
