I Rise

Once upon a Season

Fall, perhaps it was?

Year of fifteen

Although the sun shone,

the leaves fell

And so did I.

What I thought was a bliss

was when things became amiss

I didn't know what to do.

I cried.

I wept and slept for nine days straight.

Rehab was where it was they said.

I had a mental breakdown.

I was in Highschool then, in college now.

Do I forget?

Oh I shall not. 

Do I forgive?

Oh how hard I try. 

Two solid years has gone by

,but my soul is still stuck in that time
