Like a vine you have unwind
dear life of mine, awakening
my heart, my soul, and mind.
I have learned through thoughts,
as well as reading, and rereading
previous chapters in my life.
By seeing where I have gone wrong,
and realizing there has been times I stopped believing.
You have taught me I should keep swimming
even when I sabotage my own progress.
On the days when there is paranoia
flooding out my veins,
making me fear taking any further steps.
You have reassured me I am not my mistakes,
that one way or another
I am bound to reach an end,
because I can overcome most of what is blocking my lane... and my brain.
Among other things through music and poetry,
you have helped me release pain, happiness, and rage I no longer needed.
You have been the mentor I subconsciously have seeded.
