I Am Okay

by Krista   Sep 5, 2012

They're gone.

The doors have finally shut and

all those voices telling me I'm

worthless, stupid, ugly, nothing -

they are gone.

Now they are replaced with songs,

songs with melodic harmonies of

hope, optimism, truth, peace.

All I feel now is my faith renewed,

confidence charging towards the retreating battle.

I know, deep down in my heart and soul,

I will be okay.

No longer will I be a victim,

helpless to the depression that crushed me

for so long, placing me in that cave

so far down where light no longer reached.

I have conquered those fears,

climbing through until I see the sun.

I'm tired and weary, but strength is

filling my bones, energizing my spirit.

    Life will always give us peek times after the down times, no matter the night get dark , or more scary , no night lasted for ever , they will be sunshine someday. just remember u are never alone , there will be always somone you never know about , that is watching over you... somewhere ... sometimes.... that will look over you from some corner ... ... i am glad that somethings got replaced with something more beautiful in your life ....... it has been long i did not read something for you this positive i can feel :) great

    I always knew you would one day find the courage to climb out of that cave, Krista. You've got a good head on your shoulders, can't wait to see you achieve what you want for yourself. Go show the world some girlpower<3

    Like the hope and determination in this,

    I would just get rid of the double line spacing and change 'they're' to 'they've'

    have is past tense which suggest they have truly gone.

    apart from that this was a great piece,
