"The clock is running. Make the most of today. Time waits for no man. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it is called the present."


Alone at night
My demons visit
Reminding me
That once
I almost drowned
That once
I didn't believe
In a future
In life
In God

Forever it seems
They'll haunt me
Torment me
So that I'll never
Believe in happiness
Believe that love
Is freely given
And received

Lately though
I've been changing
And the stronger
I grow
The weaker my demons
Become
Time heals all wounds
I pray
Huddled
Shivering
Encased in layers
Of blankets
My cacoon

It's almost time
For the butterfly
To spread her wings
