I remember

I remember walking down bostonís streets
Snow falling so I could hear it hit the ground
Music in my ears, Walking alone

I had reached a pinnacle in my life,
I had reached a precipice
I had achieved, But I didnít know what I had done.

I heard the snow,
I heard the music
But what I truly heard
Was the pain inside, Screaming to come out

I loved this walk
Between Commonwealth and Arlington streets.
9 blocks. Trees all around
summer, winter, spring and fall
nature in the middle of a city

I had gotten away from the abuse
I had gotten away from the pain
I had risen above it all
To achieve what is expected
College, achievements, honors, fame
I had achieved it all.

but all I longed for
was the ability to be loved
loved for me
the me I didnít know
but felt inside

Mark,

Just so beautiful and so true. I can so relate to that. I had the degree, honors, renown, publications - the whole schpiel. But it counted for nothing and meand nothing until I learned that I wasn't the worthless thing I had felt myself to be for all those years. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Much love,
Larry
