One of the toughest poems I have written till date. It metaphorically talks about one of the darkest phases in my entire life and the nightmares of that phase that haunt me occasionally. I thank the forces of good that helped me overcome that torrid time and write this after having spent a little over a decade having kept my feelings of this dark time to myself. Whoever you are out there, whatever you've been through, just know, you are hear and you are now. You have overcome daunting odds to become the mountain that you are today. Embrace life and realise the immense strength that you have gained today. Peace and love!
I wrote this a long time ago, when my family friend's dog, Cookie passed on to a better place. She was suffering and in pain every night, she cried and didn't sleep for many days and at the end couldn't even walk and move around. She had to be put to sleep, but at that point, it was honestly helping her in the best way possible. I wrote this, in all honesty, to cope with the passing of my first ever pet. I knew her since she was a puppy and I was a toddler and this was all I could do to heal my heart.
