Remember your Dark Days

I remember the darkness
The gloom upon my soul
Which set me ablaze
With self-destructive ways.
I surrounded myself with abuse
Sex, drugs and alcohol
In hope for numbness
Or a quick end.
Healthy relationships
Quickly destroyed
I kept the poisonous ones
So I could hide
From myself, from my pain
Like a cancer
They took over
Until I could no longer remember.

The darkness did not win
Instead it has given me
Appreciation and
Unexplainable joy
For the life I now live.
Over time
I found myself
Buried beneath
All the past pain and lies
And I found a love
That endures through
Indifference and change.
