Calling to Me, Remember

But there was comfort there

In the pain

In the hurt

A struggle to keep breathing

When you felt you couldn’t move

The triumph of looking back

Of seeing yourself working

Loving

Living

While struggling to break free

Fighting against your thoughts

 

I was broken

But I was a warrior

The pills took that fight away

They replaced my ocean with a lake

They took the sinking sand around me

And placed me on concrete floors

Somehow

I feel more alive

And less myself

 

Sometimes I fear those pills

I’m scared they took away my ability to think

My ability to create

My will to struggle

 

If there is nothing stopping me from going forwards

Nothing in my way pushing me back

What reason is there for me to do it

 

After living a life

With impossible obstacles

After wandering through deserted woods

The paved road is uninviting

And tempts me to return
