Today, Everything Seems Possible

Putting one foot in front of the other,

Or crawling on the floor,

The ambulatory mode is not as important

As the progression towards the goal.


Some months I move forward with such ease,

A trained athlete at the peak of his powers.

Other months, I atrophy: a sloth of will and effort,

A will that cannot cope.


A day like today, you ask~Everything

Seems possible~solutions are on the way~

I made a plan~I can beat the blues away~


Inevitably, I trip and fall, and away with it all

I slide, to begin the cycle anew.


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.
