Life Now

It is quiet now
Noone is wanting from me
Life is what I make it

There are more feelings now
Noone is there to take from me
Life is many things

There is laughter now
The freedom to let it out
Life is more colorful

There is more Life now
Life's experiences have shaped me
Life is what I make of Life

These are my desisions. My Life is what I make it, and what I make it I must live with. All I have is now, today. We never know when our lives will end. So I must make what I can of today.

My life is what I make it, I have to live with my decisions. I must think before I leap.

My life now, less hectic,
more peaceful.

I have to make choices about life, this poem is one that I can relate to right now. That is mostlikely why I wrote it a few months back. I am making better choices.

It is still up and down with my sex addiction, and looking at the long term view, I am getting better.

It has been a while since I have been here. Please feel free to comment.

Thanks Jer. My therapist and I talked about forgiving myself for acting out with others, I started crying. I guess I am growing.

Life now is feeling feelings
all the time, even if I am scared or sad
I am not the wicked little boy I thought I was

I can still dance without shame, I did not do anything wrong. It was done to me.
