"To be one's self, is to be truly honest, truly loyal, and truly great."


It’s indeed more than certain that this path I embark on is more than life,
A victim of physical and emotional abuse;
And a sign of light;
It’s sad you see the alcohol and drugs I’ve used;
But they never could quite cover my fight.

Maybe though it has brought the seemingly best of me;
A gift not in wrapping paper and ribbons or bows, but one within;
Sometimes the depression made it hard to see;
But this life is more embraced than what was thought to be.
External or internal;
Inside or out;
This life is a gift;
A light,
Not a dark.

This is amazing, the emotion behind the words is so powerful and so strong. I wish I could write as great as you. I really feel the pain and struggle in this poem. I'm surprised it hasn't been publishedin the magazine. But really this is such beautiful peice. Could you comment on some of my stuff please? <3
