Another Life

Updated on December 31, 2014

2014 went by in a blur.
A year filled with
love
loss
laughter
tears
utter heartbreak
and at the last second
a feeling of undeniable
success.
I started the year
with a smile.
I got some kisses
then my heart
filled with sadness.
I was kicked around,
my lungs bruising
from trying to stay
alive for too long.
Tears washed away
my tainted skin
and I was
picked up
by gentle hands
that smoothed out
my edges.
I was primped
and polished
and breathing on
my own again.
I took step
after
step
and reached my graduation stage
and I threw
my cap up
along
with who I would
never be again.
I took a sabbatical,
a month,
to find my sense of self.
I found it
on the top of
a snow covered mountain.
I returned home.
Started college,
which excited
and scared
me.
It brought out
the worst
and the anxiety consumed
me,
for years now,
until I found
my release
at the bottom
of a pill bottle.
I met a
family
and a boy
and a best friend.
I met my demons
and my happiness
and my fears
and I said
hello
with a dark-lipped
smile.
I felt my heart
beating for me
and my laughter
escaping effortlessly.
I felt my fingers
typing,
telling a
story.
A year
I thought
I couldn't survive
and it ends
with the happiest
I've ever been.
And I thank
the world
for another
chance.
Another chapter.
Another life.
