I got through the recovery
I felt happiness and hope
I slept through the night
I explored on my own
I was good by myself

Then the other day happened
I didn’t want to be in public
I didn’t want to see the sun
Or even speak out loud
Last night I couldn’t sleep
Tossing and turning
Today’s plans got changed

Days like this knock me down
When I need to see the graph
The way that recovery looks
It’s never a steady incline
Take the punches with grace
Moving one step at a time
When I feel lost
And in the dark
I need to remember the light
That I will be there again
Trusting the process
The process of finding health
