Things are getting easier

by Em   Oct 6, 2017


I thought I needed someone to feel a little love
what I don't remember is it should be me I love
for when the tough gets going that's when you all leave
even when I Iost my boy you left me alone to grieve
so I picked myself up and brushed off the hurt
dragged myself up from the worm riddled dirt
I was fragile regardless of acting extremely tough
the monsters showed themselves that's sure enough

but these days I'm getting stronger I'm putting up a fight
for yesteryears are over and good days are in my sights.

    I love the positive spin on this piece. "I dragged myself up from the worm riddled dirt" graphic visuals that reinforce the dark tgat you've been through. Also liked very much the rhyming. Milly x
