The Me of Today

By: needtobreathe555

Page 1, I wrote this after my mom came home from a rehab center. I had finally realized that the worst was behind me. And that although i still feel the pain every now and then, it was time to move on and let go.


             And now, as I look at the ‘me’ of years ago,

             I know that the worst is behind me.

             I still feel the occasional slash of the whip,

             But I know, I will carry on, knowing there are friends beside me.

             I know there will be the occasional sniffle or tear,

             But I carry on, without a shadow of doubt or fear,

             Knowing that the sea is finally at ease,

             And the real person inside me,

    A bird, trapped in its cage,

    Will finally be set free.
