My 2016

Twenty-Sixteen.

Year of chance, year of love, year of heartbreak.

Love was lost as partners left,

Loneliness engulfed kids as divorce struck them

Leaving them longing-

Longing for a new beginning, one with love.

 

However, 

This year of heartbreak was 

Also

The year of recovery.

 

Children became familiar

With the things they loved-

I declared I desired to pursue music education,

I declared "I will get through this," 

Into the face of depression.

 

I prevailed- I conquered.

 

Joining Cheer,

Becoming a drummer,

Auditioning for honor ensembles,

Never quitting at the game of life.

 

2016, I conquered.

 

Sincerely, Me.
