New Day

Please my dear,
let me hear,
your pain, your sorrow, your regret.

You have to learn to know,
how to let it go,
for your soul seems to be dying inside.

Learn for me,
because i hold the key,
to unlock to the blocking gate.

And once you are free,
people will start to envy,
your strength, your focus, your force.

It is time to open your eyes,
so we can enjoy the sunrise,
today is the start of your life.

My older sister is a struggling drug addict. I feel as if she is trapped and doesn't think she has a way out, she was my inspiration.

I hope this poem helps people realize that there is something great inside of everyone. They need to push past their limits and not be scared of what they may encounter.
