Finding Myself

Cookie was a quiet child, a caring soul with manner mild,

but as she grew she had to fight against her world all filled with strife

It couldnt last, she had a break, then meds she found she had to take

to keep the demons from the door, she lost herself, she was no more.

She looked upon those meds one day, said " I dont want to live this way "

but after only just two days, her head feels strange in many ways

trying to wean off these meds with demons running through her head,

she says " the demon shouts at me, this choice youve made is not to be.

for on these pills you now depend, to stop you going round the bend ".

She looked upon the meds in hand, said " I will fight, ill make a stand "

Cookie is a mess right now, but to herself she made a vow

To persevere and reach her goal, to fight once more to save her soul,

she'll fight these demons face to face as this will be her saving grace,

To live her life, not free from pain, but how nice to feel emotions again.

Love Cookie xxx

  • Just wanted to say what an amazing poem you have written. It moved me and I could so identify with what you have expressed. You are very talented. I only wish I could express myself so well; maybe I need to try poetry!! Thank you so much x x

  • Hiya and bless you,

    id never written a poem in my life till this hit me in the face 9 months ago so please give it a go, its amazing what we gain from pain and anxiety xxx

  • Cookie is the bravest soul,

    Who is fighting to be whole!

    The demons who at her shout

    I am sure that she will rout!

    Gently, and with care, my dear,

    Your cherished goal you will draw near.

    Love yourself amidst the fight

    Look up, and see the light!

    The light is there, though clouds obscure it

    And we feel we can’t endure it!

    But a breeze can blow a cloud away

    And we see it’s bright as day!

    And though the war-drums loudly rumble,

    I know this Cookie will not crumble!!!

    Gently does it, my love, if going down 50mg is too much, go down 25 mg - take it at your own pace and you will get there!

    With love and huggles


    Your Rosebud
