Diving Deep. ~ Jennifer Sofie Gulick

Via on Dec 5, 2012

Shaky hands, and a broken heart

A deep, gnawing, wretched feeling
Same old reflection in the mirror

No preaching of rebirth
Not in this time of hibernation
I am on the brink of diving deep

Sitting alone in the upstairs of my mind
No support but my own

I will not run
I will not hide
This wilderness is mine

I am not afraid
