My Recovery From Addiction And The Darkness

There Is Recovery After Abuse
There Is Recovery After Abuse

Battling Addictions And Abuse:

You may have read some of my stories I have shared on my past such as abuse, rape and anorexia nervosa. In this poem I pour my entire life into one reflection. First came abuse, then suicide, followed by drug addiction, a vicious teen-age rape attack, more suicide, anorexia nervosa, and then finally a special victorious moment that set me free.

I am an open book, I have no shame in talking of my past, as I dearly hope it can help some-body else. I never believed I was strong, but yet found strength inside me I never knew was there. I look back to every-thing that has happened with no regrets, no pain, no remorse, as I have truly let them all go.

If unforgiveness, unbelief in yourself, or the events of your past has held you back, I want you to know that you too can achieve what I have achieved, if you believe. I will walk with you every step of the way in spirit and soul…..I am no better or more perfect than any-body else, I have just taken back from my life what was rightfully mine

Please watch the video of my life story at the end of this hub and let it touch your soul.

My Recovery


Eyes portraying inward fears,

Robbed of many child-hood years,

Longing for that special friend,

Hoping all the pain would end.


Desiring love to come my way,

Down upon my knees I prayed,

Battered, bruised, with fear inside,

Many, many tears I cried.


As teen-age years crept up fast,

I held on to my wretched past,

When rape came by to bruise my soul,

My spirit broke, I lost control.


Fighting demons, bound in my heart,

I watched my whole world fall apart,

Although the speed ran through my veins,

It only served to mask the pain.


Although I tried to end my sorrow,

There always came a new tomorrow.

If I could not change the wretch inside,

Then I’d mold and shape the girl out-side.


So then the weight began to pummel,

My life a mere darkened tunnel,

And then another blow came forward,

As I was committed to a mental ward.


I couldn’t breathe, nor eat nor think,

Or be understood by the ward’s top shrink.

Each day grew worse as the disease took hold,

Alone, afraid, my body cold.


Then one night an angel stood,

As my body hit the floor of wood.

As nurses worked to revive my heart so dear,

I watched above with shock and fear.


My eyes were opened as I looked down in regret,

I whispered, “My life isn’t finished yet.”

I realized then it was just insane,

That I had carried others shame.


Tears of light freely shed,

Over wasted years my soul had led.

I pictured those who stole my pride,

As I let forgiveness free inside.


No longer would I be victim of my past,

With precious life ticking by so fast.

With every bit of strength unrestrained,

I allowed myself to break the chains.


I vowed with all my heart and soul,

To give my spirit back full control.

To let the pain and hatred cease,

And live the life foretold to me.


From that day I now walk in pride,

With love and joy and faith inside.

Believe in miracles and you will see,

The truth and strength to set you free.


Live each day, don’t look behind,

Live in love, try to be kind.

Lift up your sword and shout in glee,

“In this world there’s no-one like me”.

If your life has seen abuse, rape, unforgiveness, disease, addiction, suicide, anorexia, whatever it may be remember this:


‘For past the meadow, dark and grim,

Lies joy, hope, and peace in spring.

As butterflies, do spread their wings,

Love, again, will well within’.

It is not what you once where, but what you are now. I read what you write and I am in awe of the beauty and depth of the powerful images you present. I have started reading your other hubs over again and I am just swept away by not just the words that are written but by the richness of how it is written and the passion, the strength, the perseverance and determination.

I know we banter in the forums, but I have never met one that has left me at a loss for words as your writing does!

What you have gone through and what you have left behind, and how you dealt with it can only be a beacon of light and inspiration for those who have or are facing similar circumstances. I am honored to know you and thank you for sharing the powerful stories, pictures and videos!

Blondepoet: I have goosebumps, the beauty of your soul just shines through! Your sharing, your poetry inspires everyone to overcome whatever personal demons we have. There is no one in this planet whether abused or not,that does not have something within to heal at some point in life; and stories of transcending the darkeness such as you did and emerging a butterly which you are now, contributes to helping others.

Loved your poem! Can't understand the video because I am hearing impaired, but looked at the images. Glad to have met you in Hubland.

Logic your words mean heaps to me, I cannot thank-you enough. You know I may procrastinate with so many things in my life at the moment, but when I start feeling down with myself I just look back over the last few years, I look at where I have come from, and if the strength and victory I achieved from coming out of all those things is all I will ever do, then that is enough for me. Love you heaps, you know that xo

Violet thank-you so much for your beautiful supportive comments, it means writing this all the worth-while. Do not worry too much about the sound from the video it was a song "When You Believe", I think the pics told the story. Glad to know such a beautiful person as yourself too :)

Mon cherie mademoiselle poetess...

I literally cried reading your story, your poem, watching the video. Do not be fooled by those tears, my friend. They were tears of happiness because you dared to get up and start all over again. Your spirit shone brightly, and your God given right to be happy, rose above darkness! Be blessed, dear friend! Be blessed always and never look back, except to remind yourself the path you'd never tread again.

Rated up, Bookmarked and Stumbled!

Warmest regards and infinite eternal blessings, mate,

Blondepoet I just came across this heart wrenching post. So much of what your portray here was a dark shadow of gloom and doom growing up in the household I grew up in.Me and my five sisters were witness many nights to brutal attacks on my mother by the man in her life who was not our father. One of my sisters was sexually abused we found out later. Thank you for sharing this, so many people out there suffer dearly for the crimes of their parents. Great post and God bless you for sharing and surviving.


kimberlyslyrics 6 years ago

Blonde, you know my story and have many more, but yours does touch me maybe because its so emotional and visual. I cannot imagine how much work it took to combine once callenges that now give others hop, can't imagine how difficult that was to compile and then have it read with so much clarity. You are an inspiration to so many, I speak mostly from me

Thank you for sharing

You are making a difference

damn. mush again. Stop it i say

btw hope you don't mind but referred to you twice in my new hub, actually my only hub

Aww Shalini you beautiful woman you are. You know just having you guys come by and leaving such inspiring loving comments means the world to me. :)

Hi Saddle lovely to meet you. Even though I went through this myself, to hear someone else share their sad child-hood experiences, makes me feel so sad. I really am sorrowed to hear what you and your sisters endured. I really hope all you guys are ok now, and life has moved on for you all. :)

Hi dear Kimberley, I am so glad you came by here. You of all people know the darkness that sweeps over you in the hardest times of your life. Isn't it amazing as I draw strength from you, and feel this bond with you. Together we stand at the top of the mountain. I really do love you heaps. :) :) Your story always stays bright in my soul. :)xo

Hi Angel. I am truly sorrowed by what you have gone through too, and what you are still going through. Believe me I know how hard it is to stop. I used it as a way to escape the rut and hardness of facing each day, it somehow seemed easier to get through. However it only masks our pains, and ends up ruining our lives. Maybe your time has not come yet where you can walk away from it, but I promise you, your time will come, and I believe you will succeed, there is a strength inside every one of us, that is capable of pulling us through, once we see that rainbow on the other side.

I've only glossed some of your writing, but that video is powerful. You have overcome much, oh blonde one, and to give back after such heartache and pain is the ultimate gift...well done. I shall continue to follow you as your writing and gift-giving will only increase. Remember, that Marilyn, too, was often cast as bimbo...it's likely what broke her in the end so many decades ago. You have overcome what many of the famous and fortunate could not. Congrats and kudos to you. I look forward to reading, or viewing, more of your precious artistry.

Oh wow Blake am blushing. Oh Lulu is a great site, you can publish your own book or PDF, which later goes to Amazon for free. You just have to pay for royalties if a book sells or you order copies yourself. It is just bonza..D.M

Oh Prey your comment touched my heart with your words. It really does mean a lot to have some-one say that. :) :)

Oh my dear BP..this poem of yours truly touched me beyond words. I cannot even describe to you the sadness I feel and the respect I have for you to be able to pour it all out so beautifully. A lyrical masterpiece of pain....I am so proud of you for being able to get past the hurt and painful memories to make a better life..one without the abuse. We love you kiddo! **HUGS**

Once a warrior with purpose stood proud,

his back as strong as his resolve,

a shattered heart is all that's left

of a man who watched others bled.

Of righteousness there is none,

no political struggle,

no metal so precious.

It is this soul whom is worth

defense, I wish I could have preserved your innocence.

A fallen knight now mourns a cause lost

by another's wasted scorn.

No justice,

only release.

For you, and you alone BP.

This broke my heart, I am so glad that you are alive to show the world what real strength is. Thank you

WOW! You sure have been through a lot; this one nearly knocked me off my chair. I'm so happy that you found your truth, hang on to it. I could never know what it is like to go through some of the things you have - but I am a recovering heroin addict and drunk, and that was a hell that nearly killed me; and did kill at least two of my friends. Thanks for sharing, that took a lot of courage. I feel as if you had to have helped some by doing so; and I know you really gave me something.

Hi there Josh really nice to meet you. Yes I was a speed addict, I had a lot of friends on heroin as well, so I know the hell it is to stop and the world you live in while you are on it.

Hey there mrpopo aww you are so kind,u gave me a huge smile this morning with your kindness. Do not worry I will not let you down, each day sees more and more love, passion, humor, healing, without sounding modest, it makes me feel so so good that I got not only through this, but have become the total opposite, with a heart so soft and tender, and a cheekiness to share with you guys. xo

Blonde Poet you astound me! Your ability to communicate heart-to-heart is undoubtedly your greatest gift. You're using it well here and, I suspect, it will be used to even greater effect in the future.

Are you a speaker? I mean, do you do any public speaking? I'm into both writing and speaking; the two go hand-in-hand. Personally, I think you could very easily become another Louise L Hay or similar, should that be your desire.

It's no surprise Blondepoet that you have so many readers for your poems - your words have iron inside them and they cut like flint, opening the hearts of others to their feelings through yours so they can know what you know - thank you - you display such a compelling combination of characteristics; strength of belief and purpose, refusal to give up on who you know you are and yet and most captivating of all, your heart is clearly full of love. What a combination. No wonder you shine, even without a hand being touched! Wow!

:D Ive been through so much pain and depression myself, sexual abuse, etc. Although im sure not as bad as you. The worst was probably having a nervous breakdown. Anyway i never had that one kind of epiphany moment where things turned around. I always hear of people having such a moment but it never happened to me. I guess its a process for me, yet i still spend too much time still thinking about the past and regretting. Its like a kind of obsession. But at least the serious depression, panic attacks and suicidal thoughts are gone and im grateful for that. Thanks for your inspiration.

Love.


blondepoet profile image

blondepoet 6 years ago from australia Author

Hi Your Knowledge gee I am saddened greatly to hear that you too have had so much happen to you. It really was a process for me too, it just didn't suddenly change one day, I had had enough suffering, enough anger, enough suicidal thoughts and actions, I just decided enough was enough as I deserved more in life. As it is for you my dear friend, why should you suffer anymore for things done to you beyond your control.I believe in you, you can be free, in your time. I really wish this for you. These things that have happened to us only make us that much stronger inside and unite us both. I send my love to you.

You can call me Ru-an btw ;) Yeah its a process, but you kind of had that out of body experience which is what i was referring to. Where it gets tough is when you realize what you missed out on. Every time i see a happy couple together or just young people having fun it reminds me what i have missed. Now im already past 30, i dont look the way i used, im even losing some hair. It just feels like i can never go back and have the things i missed. How did you deal with that? xo

Oh Ruan you deserve all that and more. As I mentioned before I am so surprised that you do not have that. Then again I had a love so great it took my breath away and then I lost it. I wrote all about it in my hub 'Love Is More Intoxicating Than Wine.'I wish I knew the answer to your question, I wish I had that love now to compare it too but sadly I am still searching too.

Anything we create that's gona be of any use to us needs testing, the same is true of Gods people and i think jesus wants you for a sunbeam, for you to be able to laugh these days and leave the past behind makes you great.

I've done a bit in my time and i can tell your spirit is immense, you've been tested well.

Like a peice of rock chiped away at until it reveals a beautifull sculpture.

Like a rally car in pre production testing beaten and smashed until it ends up an unbreakable world champion.

Belive it or not i can match you on some of your past BP,

There are so many nice comments have been made by people that it's really hard to say something that hasn't already been said, but I can't NOT say anything. You are awesome and it is great that you were/are brave enough to put everything out there. I'm really glad that it was so well-taken. You are a beautiful person, a lovely daughter (I have twin daughters who are 8 and would not know how to handle it if something like that happened to them!). I wish I could give you a mommy hug now and back then and that I could've been there to tell you it will all be okay and we'd get through it together, I'd be by your side every step of the way. That darling that we'll get those bastards and they will suffer.

Thank God they got caught.

I am so glad to have found you here and hope that we can talk more. You seem like a really cool person who has a lot of wisdom and knowledge. I don't know how old you are, but you seem wise beyond your years.

Well, I've got three 8 year old girls talking to me now so I must go so I don't sound completely distracted.

Take care and I hope you always stay positive and forgiving. Peace be with you and God Bless. : ) I'm so happy that you were able to overcome and look at the positive side of life. That's awesome. Love to you.

I commend you on your strength to share your experiences in order to help others. I can relate with you, to some extent. I have a history of drug use and sales, which led me to 8 years in federal prison, which I write extensively about in my hubs. Your You Tube video was very well done, as well.
