Acceptance of Me

Today is day 25 of not drinking. Day 5 of being home alone unsupervised. LOL  I am enjoying this alone time. 
I feared that I was going to fall into old habits of brooding and needy.
However I am most pleased to say that this not the case. I am taking advantage of it all. 
Huh……another personal growth step. Look Ma no hands! 
Tender kisses
butterfly soft
fingers entwined
watching the night lights
head upon shoulder
time is on our side
as we wait
for life to begin.
Time unfolds
roads
twist
turn
never straight
not always easy
begrudged
not a once
for this is life.
Happiness
fleeting
forever
depends upon whom
you rely…..
self
or
others?
Truths
accepted
acknowledged
no atonement
this is me
who I be.
My…..self.
My…..purpose.
My…..reality.
Wrapped
blanket of peace
of joy
life no longer scares
embraced
the road traveled
less lonely
less frightening
all
for learning to accept myself.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
