Poetry, Paintings, and Ponderings: Through My Eyes

I’m Becoming August 6, 2012


i looked

into the eyes of the most evil dragons

i held

the hands of fiery demons

screaming and pleading

i begged for help

but there was to be no rescue

of this damsel in distress

blinded by fear and pain

i ran, far, far away

to another kingdom

where dragons and demons

could only haunt me

in my dreams

hating what i became

just a shadow of me

an empty shell

where my soul

used to be

but now, each day,

i fight back

i look for the beauty

in a sometimes ugly world

i look for happy

when i’m filled with sad

i’m becoming….

stronger than my demons

i’m becoming…

healthier in my spirit

i’m becoming…


once again.
