Sink back into yourself

Remember who you are

The inner world holds many secrets

The castle made up of seven layers

Each layer has a line to erase

Made up of barriers and lures

When I think about other people

When I think about their lives

My life becomes dull and dim

My vital signs signal a distress from within

I sink deep into myself

And notice a resonating calm and peace

A familiar feeling I have known before

Have I experienced it in this world?

My life becomes meaningful again

There is a reason why I am here

I learnt to be with myself again

Accepting everything I have touched

    I think we are currently on similar journeys. I have not processed mine enough perhaps to write about it so directly. I get distracted from the healing process by all the sparkly parts it makes come alive in your brain. I'm a distracted driver too. haha But you access it so beautifully and I love everything you write, especially your poetry. You make me want to not give up. - fellow writer & subscriber
