#thursday photo prompt destination

I am again participating in Sue vincents writephoto prompt this week

Here is my entry…

I am on a path
A path of darkness
Shadows fall
Up in front of me
The way is misty
Will I ever get out?
Will I ever be free?
In the darkness of the trees
I grapple to feel
My way out
No one is around
To hear me call
As the mist clears, I see the way out
Finally, I am free!

Thursday photo prompt: Destination #writephoto

Freedom

tonight here I sit
wondering
pondering
should I stay
sit here
sit and cry
or try
to ride the wave
go ahead
I tell myself
I wont quit
instead I will sit
surrounded by
love, kindness
I will speak nicely to myself
because I am free
in 2019 I am free to choose
Free to be me
Freedoms what I fought for
For so long, so many years
So I will take it
Grab it with both hands
Quitting isn’t an option
Not an option for me now
Instead
I sit here
All thought of fear
and sadness
evaporating
I am free!
Hurray for freedom from my past!

POEM TO MY 15 YEAR OLD TEEN PART

AS SHE SITS ON HER BED
LOOKS INTO 15’S EYES
SEES HOW FRIGHTENED SHE IS
SHE HOLDS OUT HER HAND
TAKE MY HAND, SHE SOFTLY MURMURS
WE’LL EXPLORE THIS NEW PLACE TOGETHER
I AM WITH YOU NOW, NO NEED TO WORRY
I’LL TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOU
PROMISE, AND I DONT BREAK MY PROMISES
NOT IF I CAN HELP IT
15 SHYLY HOLDS OUT HER HAND
A SMILE ON HER FACE
TOGETHER THEY STAND
AND WALK HAND IN HAND
TO EXPLORE THE SURROUNDINGS
OF 15’S NEW LIFE
A LIFE OF FREEDOM
NO LONGER STUCK IN A DARK SWAMP
SHE IS OUT NOW
EMBRACING FREEDOM
IN ALL ITS GLORY
SHE IS OUT
SHE CAN SHOUT
AT THE TOP OF HER LUNGS
I AM FREE
FREE TO BE ME
YIPPEE!

Take my hand…

take my hand
we’ll walk this journey together
we’ll rise above the scum who took our innocence
come, take my hand
and come with me
and together we’ll sit a while
talk and share
together we’ll make it through
and come out stronger
together we’ll rise
and live a wonderful life
together…
we can do it…
we can be ourselves
strong and free
