I Know Tough Times Dont Last But Tough People Do

Notifications: · Newest First
For @Fungirlmmm's WRITER'S WEEKLY CHALLENGE - WEEK OF APRIL 11, 2019 - WEEK 12


its with lots of gnarly nothingness,
I slowly start to remember;
long dull pain,
aching anxiety
numbness nostalgia,
that filled me
all waking hours;
in nightmares too
all enthusiasm consumed,
like bare trees' tortured tangles,
interaction confused and un-satisfied,
stifled and barren,
wind whipped
and no bright apples,
bar one withered and bearing lonely worm,
slowly eating away
all the juicy tasty goodness.
But; guess what and fortunately - that's now long ago
and another spring did touch through that
and new growth did arrive,
slow but wiser rebirth,
my metamorphosis,
a burst of bright brash butterflies
and shift to happy happiness.

New happiness after a dark time is quite wonderful, as is your poetry.

[@327203,ChampagneOnIce] thank you - it does surprise me where this challenge takes us each week - this week for me it was just back to a tougher time - but I have found that the hard times have made me stronger 馃憣

[@889210,SailingSlow] I鈥檝e observed hard times make some stronger while others give in to being a victim or become bitter. I鈥檓 glad it鈥檚 the former for you. They鈥檝e made me stronger too.
