 MY MIND WALK
HAPPINESS,SADNESS,ANGER,PAIN,
A WORLD OF DARKNESS AM I TO BLAME?
 STRESS,CONFUSION,ANXIETY,PERSONALITY,
NOT THE SAME...
 TWISTED,STRAIGHT,LEFT,RIGHT,
AM I STARTING TO GAIN NEW SIGHT?
 HEADACHE,BACKACHE,SHOULDERS FEEL HEAVY,
IS IT ALL THE ABOVE THAT I CARRY?
 TIRED,AWAKE,ASLEEP,WALKING,
ALWAYS WAKING UP,FOR WHOM AM I TALKING?
 WALKING,RUNNING,JOGGING IN PLACE,
THE FRESH AIR I BREATH,THE MIST I CAN TASTE.
 SUN UP,SUN DOWN,FROM NIGHT,THEN TO DAY,
WHY DURING THIS TIME DO I FORGET WHAT I WAS TO SAY?
 MIRRORS,WALLS,SHADOWS,LIGHT,
I UNDERSTAND NOW WHAT I NEEDED TO FIGHT..
 PEN,PAPER,WORDS,THE BIBLE,
READ IT ALL,WRITE EVERY DAY,THE WORDS
 IN THE BOOK RELEASED THE HOOKS..
MANIPULATION,LIE'S,FEAR,DECEIT,NO
 LONGER CONTROL ME I'M NO LONGER WEAK.
THE LORD,THE ANGEL'S,THE DOVE'S,MY CHILDREN'S
 LOVE...MADE ME SO STRONG NOW ME YOU CAN'T
BUDGE....
 NOW....
HAPPINESS,LOVE,KISSES,AND HUGS,THEY HOLD ME
           HIGH THEY HOLD ME STRONG,
SADNESS,
ANGER,
SOME PAIN REMAINS BUT HAVE MOVED ON..
 STRESS,GONE CAN SOME TIMES RETURN.
 CONFUSION,I JUST ASK QUESTIONS TO LEARN.
 ANXIETY,THAT HELD ME DOWN BEFORE,IT'S GONE
         SHUT AND LOCKED THAT DOOR...
 HEADACHE,
 BACKACHE,
 SHOULDER'S HEAVY,SOME TIME YES,BUT NOT FROM
                  THE ABOVE I'VE LEFT BEHIND..
 TIRED,
 AWAKE,
 ASLEEP,
 WALKING,YEAH I STILL WAKE UP AT NIGHT TALKING.
 WALKING,
 RUNNING,
 JOGGING IN PLACE,I STILL LOVE THE FRESH AIR
                  I BREATH,AND THE MIST IN MY FACE...
 SUN UP,
 SUN DOWN,
 FROM NIGHT,
 TO DAY,REMEMBER AND KNOW EXACTLY WHAT TO SAY.
 MIRRORS,
 WALLS,
 SHADOWS,
 LIGHTS,I STAND UP STRONG,PUT UP A GREAT FIGHT..
 PEN,
 PAPER,
 WORD,
 BIBLE,THE PEN AND THE PAPER SEND MY MESSAGES TO
       YOU.THE BOOK RELEASED ME SO I CAN DO THIS
       FOR YOU...
 MANIPULATING,
 LIES,
 FEAR,
 DECEIT,WILL NEVER CONTROL ME,FOR IT I HAVE BEAT.
THIS IS A WALK THROUGH MY MIND,A BRAIN LIKE MINE
 YOU DON'T OFFER FIND,WHAT WAS ONCE HELD BACK,
CELLS BEING BURNED,MY LIFE TOOK A SERIOUS TURN...
 WHAT WAS ONCE BEATEN AND WITHERED BY DRUGS,ABUSE,
PLUS ALL THE ABOVE....
 CAME BACK LEARNING FILLING THE GAPS,OMG!!!
I GOT MY MIND BACK...!!!!
 GRADUATED FROM SCHOOL AT THE AGE 32,WENT TO
COLLEGE,LEARNED HOW TO HEAL....MY MIND IS STRONG
 AND IT YOU CAN FEEL.....
 THROUGH MY PEN AND PAPER,THE WORKS I SPEAK,
THE BOOK I'M WRITING ABOUT MY DEFEAT,
 ENJOY THE WALK I TAKE YOU ON,NOT MANY CAN
DO THIS WHEN THEIR MIND HAS BEEN GONE ON
 HEROIN SEVEN YEARS STRONG...
STUDIES HAVE PROVED IT, I'M ONE OF A FEW,
 THAT LIVE AFTER HEROIN HAS TOTALLY CONSUMED
AND TAKEN OVER YOU...
 THE WAY IT DID ME..THEN QUITTING THIS DRUG
COLD TURKEY...NO DRUG I TOOK TO HELP ME,
 I GOT HIGH ON MY OWN. SO MYSELF I QUIT.
SIX WEEKS OF PAIN AND SICKNESS,AN MORE TO
 COME..WHEN THE SICKNESS WAS OVER...
RIGHT THEN I WAS DONE...
 NOT TO MANY PEOPLE ARE AS LUCKY AS MYSELF,
I GOT MY MIND BACK IN PERFECT HEALTH.....
