Fixing Me


The time away has cleared my mind
I now can move ahead...
For months so much uncertainty
with phantoms in my head...

The issues are now clear to me
I wandered from my course...
I tried to fill an emptiness
and now so much remorse...

I have to learn to look within
to work on fixing me...
To purge away the ugly things
so I can then be free...

    Often that is the right path to take, once we can accept our frailties along with our strengths, we come to acceptance, and claim our own happiness, it sounds like you've done some serious soul work, well done Jon, so glad to hear from you again xxx
