Little Deaths

Every day we die little deaths~
Every cell must die and be
Replaced by one new.

A shift in thinking
Causes a little death of a 
Misconception or agéd thought.

Little deaths cause renewal
And growth if only we
Embrace them.

A forest consumed by fire
Fosters new growth, allowing
The new to flourish.

Little deaths bring change
And growth and peace~
Or tear the world apart.

About ~Drew

I am a survivor of childhood torture. Each day, I put one foot in front of the other, moving forward. To do any less would spell my own destruction. My music/poetry/prose deal with the devastating effect of this kind of abuse on a human being: me. My experiences/thoughts/ideas/misconceptions are exposed here for all to see. Here. I am lain bare, naked, hidden only be the cloak of anonymity.
