All people have pain. Some people have deep and terrifying internal pain, at points. Now, there is one huge difference between those who end up healing from that pain, and those two don’t – the difference is whether they are willing to go to those dark places inside of themselves.

Some people seem to live by the motto, “We don’t go there,” in order to stay “fine.” Anyway, I’m going to be posting a series of poems that I myself wrote several years ago, when I was going through a really dark time myself.


At this point in my life, I have full healing from those things. So first of all, that means that once you “go there,” you don’t have to get stuck there! Healing IS possible! One can absolutely must it through these things. The wounds from the past are now, in my life, nothing but scars that have an old story attached.

My motto is:  We DO go there!

A humorous caricature of the other approach (we don’t go there) is excellently illustrated in this sketch: “Stop It” Therapy 

So, the next several posts will be a collection of my “Darkest Days” poems. Enjoy!
