This Year
~**~   This year I faced turmoil…
This year I faced deep depression…
This year I faced inner conflict…
This year I faced an inner journey… I got a diploma after the greatest trial in my life…
And it took me so long to recover…
I never ran from my problems…
I stood up and fought on the inside…
And though I always tried to speak up no one heard me… This year I decided it was enough…
This year I decided to face my inner most storm with God to help…
Because it’s always good to have Him as a guide when digging deep inside… This year I decided it was time to let it all go…
This year I let go of past wounds…
This year I forgave my haters…
This year I forgave myself… This year I decided to fix this turmoil building in my house…
This year I brought my family closer together…
This year I brought my family closure… Things are changing for the better…
And it’s time to move on to the next chapter… And I can now say with honors…
I didn’t run…
And that I faced my storms…
When I felt so horrid, dead, and condemned…
I faced my inner storms…
And fought the good fight… This year I can say I did everything I could…
This year I can say I grew up…
And surpassed my elders… I’ve grown so much inside…
I survived my hurricanes this year…
I faced them and fought with honor… I can’t say I did everything right…
But I can say that didn’t run…
And I can say I’m no coward when it comes to inner turmoil and life’s hurricanes… My hurricanes hit me so fast…
And leave me in shock…
Leave me breathless…
It hits me hard deep in my core…
And now my inner core shines brighter…   ~**~
Author's Notes:
A poem to move on to the new year and the next chapter in my life...
 
I realize I kinda made it sound like I graduated this year, I actually graduated w/ my class of '08...
What I meant is that I'm just now letting go of some problems...

Wonderful piece!!! Proudly you faced what others run from.. I am in awe of this write and can only say that it is harder to do what you did, than it is to give in and just turn away and say to heck with it! Bravo to you!

What a great idea, hoosier lady, to wrap up the experiences of the year as you move on with great expectations to the next.  Excellent expression and wonderful imagery.  Very nicely done.
