The Bad Places

Updated on January 15, 2016

I am an artist, designer, photographer and writer. See more of my work on cmariearts.

Sometimes life takes you to places

That you don't want to see

Hidden dark places

Where you are not free

These places reside

Deep in your mind

Stored and locked away

Inside a lot to hide

Some things can be terrifying

Fearing your own shadow

Your tortured side

Don't give up hope

You will wake up

From this time

A way out again

A new outlook

On life

      Do not give up, you will wake up. You seem to know, dear one, you seem to know. Not much is scary, looked at a different way. Most things create inner strength and the descent of a greater clarity.

      You write great poems. Much Love.
