Stuck here alone

in this hollow shell,

a casing that wraps me

in endless hell.

You left me alone,

 broken, and bruised -

anger and hatred

forever infused.

Within me it torrents

and rages.

The only thing keeping me

sane is -

A hope for the


A hope that I just

might grow.

Stuck here alone

in this empty room,

a casing that traps me

and makes me fume.

You cast me aside,

with no second thought -

You never even saw

the pain that you brought.

A hurricane wreaking

havoc inside,

I'm waiting for something

To change it's tide.

A ray of light


The darkness no longer


I'm here now,

a life of my own.

Its time now,

I pick up the phone.

I cast aside

the hellish shell,

now that the

hatred is felled.


the calm

after a storm,

I found love,

now I'm

no longer


I have found

what I needed,

even after

everything seeded. 

The seeds that you


Of hatred, of anger -

Finally grew,

since the storm

is no longer

a danger.

I didn't find pain

in their growing,

I found something


and free flowing.

I made it my own,

the trials destructive.

I never gave up,

I just stayed productive.
