Shaken From My Sleep By Ashley Herkommer

Darkness veils my mind

Just a hostage to self-doubt

The soul yearns for light

 

Shaken from my sleep

The slumber that slowly kills,

Crumbles and retreats

 

New day means new choices

Remove the robe of sorrow

My scars become my blaze

 

Small steps fuel the way

Determined and excited

Grasping my true self

 

Sunrise lights my path

Sunset only means success

Finding inner peace

This poem is about: 
Me
