Self portrait session to let the light in

I have been quiet here for awhile

Hiding deeply within myself

Not coming out much to play

Darkness was swirling inside me

My inner demons were fighting

I was struggling to float to the top

I am still swimming my way up

Reaching for the clouds

Pointing my head towards the sun

But I am now wearing a smile

Replacing those tears that were falling

With the sound of my own laughter

This dark place is not an easy one to be in

Especially when you are not sure why you are there

Or how you even got there

It is a battle between yourself

And most of the time the darkness is winning

Fighting strongly against the light

I must continue to remind myself

This to will pass

And I will come out on top

I can fight this

I can win

I will feel whole again
