"Journey Back..." A Poem About Healing

From A Road Trip of Healing...

… … … … … … … … … … … … … … …

It has been a long time now...

I don't remember how it began any how.

I know I have some of myself to blame,

But now I know...I no longer feel the pain.

… … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … …

Somethings have changed alot and some have changed a little...

But now I know that the problem has slowly begun to whittle.

And now I look back at my depression...and see...

The best of my life...Now lies for miles ahead of me.

… … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … …

Where was I for so long?

Through it all...My heart knew Laughter and Song.

But it was all just a dream to me...

Because my heart couldn't feel and my mind could'nt see.

… … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … …

When do you finally shake the dust off your boots forever and ever ?

When pain is invisible...Oh, I hope you will never feel this...No Never !

It somehow grabbed me...and it shook me all around...

But...I never let it beat me to the ground.

… … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … …

And in the end...I was still standing tall...

Now...that I can barely feel that way...at all.

You see...God cares...through the times when we just can't adjust...

A silly thing to say? Yet...ultimately...He was the only one that I could trust.

… … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … …

At the right time...and at the right mo-ment...

The one you can trust...will make sure your cure...will be sent.

I do not say this out of a false pretense or in fake make-believe...

In a blink of an eye...He made leave...All that had made me grieve.

… … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … …

So...returned I...my friend, from a long...and wayward jour-ney...

To arrive here without that which once was...Such a part of me.

And found...the Journey Back...like a Prodigal Son...

To a Brand New Journey...which has only just begun !

… … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … …

Your path is one...filled with re-cov-e-ry...

Journey Back to Healing...and be set free!

A New Day and a New Way of Living...without the hurt you've come to know so well...

Approaches for you now...on the Horizon...Blasting the old (*)____ straight to Hell!

… … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … …… … … … …

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! JOURNEY BACK TO HEALING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks, prettydarkhorse: Appreciate you visiting this poem on the road trip to healing...Healing is what this one is all about. Though, we all have need of some type of healing...and many folks are in need of healing touch right now...We all have a road trip to take on our journey through healing. So glad...this touched you...and made you recall your healing...which I hope when you say that word...it is "healing" in the past tense...as in over and done! I agree with you...I hope everyone finds healing completely...even though in life...that's a pretty tall order. I know I have rc'vd mine...plenty of times...and am grateful! Mucho Blessings to you, Maita...MPM
