Waking to the sounds of water flowing down.
My garden needs this love.
Plants grow and so do I.
Reveling in raindrops, slumber slips away.
Once was sinking; now i rise above.
For rain never lies.
Wash away my sadness
Cleanse, absolve these sins.
Dark, pretty clouds simper as they fizz.
Wonder to the trees, which protect, shelter.
I become unburdened of You who hindered me.
I’ve had more than one affliction.
Now have new addictions.
A penchant for words, books, wifi.
Long gone are the days I lied.
Map my life by my mistakes.
But at least this girl ain’t no fake
Want others to hear my story and know not what to do.
For you’ll end up like me, mightily confused.
I sometimes think I am broken.
That inside I am frozen
But instead of seeking nightly joys.
I understand that’s part of my flaws.
Lazy lidded days are over.
No longer even recognize her.
For from the ashes I did rise.
Next time I’ll be sure to put more ice in my tea before entering the “Hot zone.”
