How much will have changed in the next five years

In Five Years I will be different

by hopehill

I may have traveled to new places Seen things I'd never seen before

Put myself through the paces Of a writing career

I will have witnessed beauty Like I have never known

Written of the future I once thought I'd never know

I will have ventured out of my own comfort zone Forced myself to realize There's more to life than what was shown

I will have learned that I don't have to do it on my own I can ask for help No longer will I be alone

It's not like it used to be I'm not a child frightened of my shadow

Now I know that in life Sometimes the real monsters exist in daylight

Those are the ones that keep me up at night. Afraid to close my eyes

I will be happy and sad And sometimes even mad

I will have ventured forth into the wild yonder And written things that make others ponder

I will be stronger than I was five years ago Because only I can limit how far I'll go

@michaelschulze You don't know how right you are. I have PTSD so I wrote this to remind myself that even if I do spend lots of time trapped in a past I can't ever escape that the future still exists and when my disorder isn't rearing its ugly head I can and will strive to learn, change and grow.

Life is meant to be lived get out there and live it so many people spend their entire lives without ever having lived it they go from day to day just existing you are right you will learn. Learn about pain learn about life learn to love and how to be loved it can be scary but you won't know what's behind the door until you open it never be afraid to open the door A great story for people to think about
