Gifts Of The Past?

Mental Health, Other Poetry Add comments

Hi!

After a ponder about being kind to myself yesterday, I stayed up til 2am to devour the Kindle version of Turn Towards The Sun by Emma Davis WHOLE. (It’s the sequel to Letting In Light which I finished yesterday morning). I can’t remember the last time I let myself do that!! It made me feel amazing, I love a bit of chick lit now and then 😉

My journal prompt asked me to consider how my past equipped me for my present. This poem popped out:

 

Oppression,

Depression,

Obsession with impressions.

Train wreck

 

Deflation

Of elation

At thoughts ‘above my station’.

 

A vocation of creation

Seems to promise my salvation.

 

Ok then…! 

Moving swiftly on…
