How Often

How often, oh how often
In the days that have gone by
Did I sit alone in my bed room
Feeling like I wanted to die
I had so many reasons
I told myself each day
But God lifted them up and
He bared them all away
My heart was filled with hatred
About my life I did not care
And the burden I’d lain upon myself
Seemed greater than I could bare
A flood of thoughts came over me
That filled my eyes with tears
Because of the pain I’d brought on myself
For so many, many years
How glad I am now that my life has changed
And my burdens are no more
I’ve accepted God
Got off the drugs and
Finally found my self-love

    You are so honest and deep. A heart filled with so much to share. I do understand that journey because my best friend of twenty years walked that path for a long time. To see the difference in him after chemical recovery is wonderful. I am glad you have changed direction...I am digging your writes.
