Coming Home

She'd never looked at life this way
There's beauty all around
How could I have got so low
Just needed to be found

When the first tear fell from her
She thought that it would mend
Didn't think she'd still be here
It never seemed to end

And the days they turned to weeks
The weeks turned into years
It took awayher confidence
Replaced with all her fears

She knew the circle wouldn't stop
Each morning brings new pain
Wonders how the bright sky feels
She's only used to rain

Looking at herself one day
She stared into her eyes
And saw that there was nothing left
She's done with living lies

Admitting that she needed help
It took a lot to do
But knows she's coming home one day
The grey skies turn to blue

With every ounce of strength in her
She had to do what's right
And knew that it was time to start
The long uneasy fight

    Hi Megan, touching write this. The value of self worth and wanting better in life has been brought out well. You’ve brought out the theme very well - the true meaning of coming home is being true to ourselves. Well penned! I sure hope to read more of your work. Vicky.

    It takes just as long as it does to find courage to face fears. It's in the getting there eventually that validates the hard journey. Thanks for sharing this. Lovely.
