Thank you

I’ve updated this to include it in the Daily Post challenge: Making a new start is never as simple as it seems on paper. It’s easy to talk about losing a few pounds or giving up the job you hate to weave animal-shaped baskets on a tropical island, but less so to make it happen, and keep at it.

In this week’s writing challenge, we’re asking you to write a short piece of creative writing (fiction/poetry/prose poetry/freeform mindjazz/whatever floats your boat) on the theme of Starting Over.

Starting Over

You hit me and hurt me,
and watched as I fell.
Pleasure you took,
from my personal hell.
I begged and I pleaded,
you laughed in my face.
I gave you my heart,
you shat in it’s place.
I thought I’d hit bottom,
no hope for my life.
No family around me,
no longer a wife.
But something strange happened,
as time trickled past.
I started to smile,
relearned how to laugh.
Now I stand taller,
no longer afraid.
With hope for the future,
and plans being laid.
You left me alone,
cast off and adrift.
But in misery given,
I received such a gift.
Through sadness inflicted,
I’ve learned what goes wrong.
The signs to look out for,
as strife comes along.
So I thank you dearly,
for making me see.
I’ve come through the heartache,
as a much better me.
