DON1 - RECOVERY
This story is rated 4 stars (1 ratings).
Clouds gather and….
A man goes on a journey, leaves his friends behind
To travel far with strangers with hopes to clear his mind
Troubled times had come between the tranquil lives he’d lead
That tested faith and loyalty when those he’d loved were dead
Puts things in perspective they always say in haste
But not in context in his mind to him it’s all just waste
Who ruled we should lie down to death with nothing left to fight?
The invasive drugs and questionnaires steal time from ones who might
Otherwise gather strength and last a little longer
In making up for wasted days when single minds were stronger.
The skies lighten and….
A lighter form of questioning is laid before him now
Enough to stir great memories of earlier times so proud
The joy of birth that brings new life has brought a better dawn
The darkness that surrounded all his hopes has all but gone
The day has come when he returns a wiser better man
Steeled against a future time when things won’t go to plan
Family and friends are buoyed that he’s his charismatic self
And those memories of times gone bad are put upon a shelf.
