Bittersweet Healing

One Single Impression
Prompt 271: Feel/Feelings

born into evil
life consumed by darkness
until the light of amnesia
breaks open my world

pain anguish fear
drown me while i fight to breathe
mind once shattered
slowly begins to mend
decades of heartache
fear and sadness for what had been

nearing the end of my journey
bittersweet healing
vision quest to set myself free
to embrace what remains
of my life

  4. Thank you for your comments. Yes, I do hope for a good rest of my life.

  5. Poignant past yet positive outlook now makes this poem very inspiring. Thanks.

  6. mind once shattered

    A saving clause more or less that can break the anguish. Great take on positive steps! Nicely Maggie!
