The Great Escape

What a feeling it is – to be content

No words, no loss – no great lament

The sun is warm – I see again

I have no need – no use to pretend

What a feeling it is – to be set free

No chains, no shackles – no emotional decree

The snow is bright – I feel again

I have no need – no use to pretend

What a feeling it is  – to simply be me

I breathe, I feel – I can simply be

The air is crisp – I live again

I have no need – no use to pretend

I have escaped once more from depression’s snare, the jagged clutches of its mighty lair

My soul has lifted above the clouds, and leaves behind its suffocating shrouds

What a feeling it is – to have escaped

Liberated, enlightened, in living once more I can partake

The sun is warm – I feel again

I have no need – no use to pretend

About inmycorner

This blog began as an opportunity to tell my Dad's stories. I sat with him and the computer and together we told stories. It was a wonderful way to get to know Dad. He was 9. He and Mom had a wonderful life together and since she passed away a year and a half before him - Dad was ready to join her. I no longer tell his stories but have found stories of my own. The impetus to resume this blog was the discovery that I had stage 4 ovarian cancer. Since blogging had been so therapeutic for my dad and I to get through our grief, I felt maybe this would be a good outlet to process my situation. I also hoped it may serve as an outreach to anyone else who is facing this very ominous journey. So far, so good.
