An all encompassing pain,

eating away at me.

I try to look at the positive side,

but its just too hard to see.

There are times when hurt fills me up,

right to my very core.

I try to send it away,

but it always seems there's more.

Taking over my mind,

obsessing my every thought.

I've tried to overcome it,

but it controls any happiness I've sought.

This hurting that I live with,

has finally taken its toll.

Its torn me all apart,

and ripped away my soul.

The time has come at last,

for me to begin my healing.

To allow myself once and for all,

to deal with all these feelings.

I don't know where it will take me,

this journey of self-exploration.

I only know I need to do it,

and give it my full dedication.
