Recovery

By
Alone
No one can see
The hurt underneath
How much I can't change my ways.
My fears,
The mindset that got me here
Stuck in a spiraling down body
Unsure if I'll ever go back.
To being me,
To loving life
The carefree days I loved
Without a need for control.
I can do it myself
One day I will change
And grow from this
Once I figure it all out.
It may take a while
To step out of my altered reality
Realize there is more
In life than this obsession.
I am strong,
I will fight and conquer this.
If only I wasn't so alone.
Yet I need to do this on my own.
