peddling on

I was struggling to find my footing this week

Keep my concentration

And continue stepping forward

I could not figure out what was pulling me down

But I could feel the darkness settling in

I took each day slowly

Sometimes pushing myself to just make it through the next hour

The darkness took me by surprise

And really threw me off balance

I could not formulate into words what it was

And that made the pain go even deeper

But stepping onto my bicycle brought me back to me

It was not an easy ride

My muscles burned

My mind wanted to turn around

But I peddled forward

Slowly coming back to myself

As I pushed on

I saw how strong I had become

And I realized that I cannot listen

To the fears that were whispering there words into my heart

I have come so far

My mind is strong

I have an incredible support system

I am truly blessed to be where I am

Peddling along

Soaking in the warm air

Digging deep into my souls thoughts

For me this is beauty

This is pure

This is life
