Testimony

Tribute



In the shadow of my past I must live
Death seemed so close
But still I rose above
One last slap in the face was all it took to wake me from
the coma I had been in for years
To realize that I was ME
and not a part of soMEone else
Death was no longer my friend
I was alive and I wanted to live
But I wanted to live without the pain
and to do so would only cause more
But I knew this new pain was a temporary pain
I could live with that
Because the old pain would kill me
or I would
So I took that first step forward
not knowing what to expect
and it was hard
damn hard
But I realized that I was a survivor because I had to be
The pain still haunts me from time to time
But the pleasure of today
is worth the pain that is no longer mine

These images are amazing and so moving! Is this your artwork? Is it possible I can use one for a blog post I want to write about sorrow and hope? I've lost a friend to suicide and am hoping to use an image that represents my feelings.
