My Journey- A Poem

Source

My Journey

I hope for something more

That when I close my eyes

My dreams will open doors

For I will see the truth, no more lies.

That I am not just like you

Cold, heartless, full of anger and pain

I search for the truth

Crawling through this darkened rain.

I am on a journey to find myself inside

The kindness and smile I know is there

Just around the corner, on this journey I ride

To discover those that always cared.

The past is not the person I am today

And I know that if I search I will find

The real person that I am, the past will go away

It'll just take some time.

I hope for something more

That I will not end up like you

Hurting my family like you've done before

I close my eyes to see the truth.

No, the past is not the person I am today

And with each passing minute I grow inside

Bad things happen but the pain goes away

As I continue this journey, I ride...

Quite A While A Go

I wrote this months ago but the meaning behind this poem still holds true. I re-read it and while I did so I realized that it helped me feel better as I hope it will help others feel better in their time in need as well.

Very deep poem. That darkened rain can hang over us for long periods of time. Moving on is how we reach the sunshine. Voted upx4. Continue to ride the ride my friend. Happy trails.

Thank you. I am riding that ride. Though I must say it does seem to get those dark and rainy periods a lot. But I'll be just fine. I know I will be. Thank you again.

Just an inspiring poem...I've found we must travel through these darker skies to get through to see what's on the other side. Beautiful.

I'm glad you've found it to be so inspiring. And it is very true, we must travel through darker skies to get through the other side. Thank you jabbo1.

Beautifully written. I have found that at the times that I feel the lowest, writing about my feelings helps. Seeing it by reading it, and then analyzing it, seems to help. Even if I am the only one reading it.

This is usually the case for me as well. That's why I write and have been writing for about eleven years now.
