Poem: To Begin Again

To Begin Again

After years of mental pain,

After years of physical pain,

I am finally ready,

To begin again.

I am ready to live again.

I want to be happy,

Despite the pain.

I want to enjoy life,

Despite my illnesses.

I want to see the world.

Be able to go places again.

Be able to go back on my college’s campus again.

I want to live,

Not just survive.

I want to enjoy everyday.

I want to enjoy,

Every moment.

I know,

I will still hurt.

I know,

I am not cured.

But I am ready,

To begin again.

For the first time in two years,

I have traveled.

For the first time in two years,

I can go places again.

I can live!

I want to live!

I want to make more friends.

I want to fall in love.

I want to love everyday.

I am ready,

To begin again.

This fall,

I am going taking classes on campus.

It’s scary.

I’m scared.

But it’s time

I can’t wait!

I spend my whole life in pain,

I want to spend the rest of it:



And in love with life.

No matter how much I hurt,

I will love life.

No matter what comes my way,

I will be okay.

I am ready!


I am so ready!

I am ready,

To begin again.
