    Where is the woman who swam on the lake of
    hatred...did she make it out alive only to dry off
    her cast with the towels of damp misery?

    And where is the woman who sang sad songs
    on the sea of love...did she cry herself into a deep
    sleep and drown?

    What about the woman who carefully watched the
    negative attitudes float care/effort/less-ly into the
    ocean filled with envy...did she positively change
    and navigate her way from the bottom up?

    Maybe that person was at one time ME~
    Yes, true indeed
    all of these women combined
    together were once
    living together
    unharmoniously
    inside....me....
    until I filtered
    and drained
    all that was
    unclean
    out of my being
    through
    streams of consciousness
    and now
    I reside
    comfortably
    alongside
    the river of atonement

    Ok, Poet

    I didn't belong to this site when you posted it, but I was going through it. I hope you are still on here and still writing. This was uplifting.

    So many disturbing emotions floating around, yet you were able to purge them. Uplifting and eloquently put.
