come into my closet, come under my bed, where you'll find me hiding,
the fear in my head.

abuse in the past, now, where do i start, making my future,
healing my heart.

crushed, and broken, falling fast-
needing comfort, make it last.

All at once,

The world can overwhelm me

There's almost nothin' that you could tell me

That could ease my mind

Which way will you run

When it's always all around you

And the feelin' lost and found you again

A feelin' that we have no control

Around the sun

Some say

There's gonna be the new hell

Some say

It's still too early to tell

Some say

It really ain't no myth at all

Keep askin' ourselves are we really

Strong enough

There's so many things that we got

Too proud of

We're too proud of

We're too proud of

I wanna take the preconceived

Out from underneath your feet

We could shake it off

Instead we'll plant some seeds

We'll watch em' as they grow

And with each new beat

From your heart the roots grow deeper

The branches will they reach for what

Nobody really knows

But underneath it all

Theres this heart all alone

What about is gone

And it really won't be so long

Sometimes it feels like a heart is no place to be singin' from at all

There's a world we've never seen

There's still hope between the dreams

The weight of it all

Could blow away with a breeze

If your waiting on the wind

Don't forget to breathe

Cause as the darkness gets deeper

We'll be sinkin as we reach for love

At least somethin we could hold

But I'll reach to you from where time just cant go

What about is gone

And it really wont be so long

Sometimes it feels like a heart is no place to be singin' from at all

This is beautiful Mile. Thank you, I am glad that I was able to hear this song, I am really moved.

who I was, who I am, who I plan to be...

i am trying to heal from severe childhood sexual, emotional,
physical, and mental abuse; and abandonment.

this is my story.

i have good and bad days, and some days the odds seem insurmountable.
i cling to the hope that healing will come to mend the shatter pieces of my heart, mind and body.

mile 191, well, you will understand as you read along.
mile 191, portions of my past have a link on the top right.
mile 191, bottoms up. hears to you and to me.

please, if you know me, just let me know you found me. i need honesty. (and please do not use personal names)
if you want to follow my story, please try to heal with me.
if you want to share with me, please do.
i will post bits of my pain as i can, and leave it here.
i once thought that i would publish...i haven't had the courage.

this is my closet, you are welcome to come in.
just know this is my refuge, healing takes place here,
maybe it will be a refuge to you too.

When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.
Helen Keller

Success is not to be measured by the position someone has reached in life, but the obstacles he has overcome while trying to succeed.

When I hear somebody sigh, 'Life is hard, ' I am always tempted to ask, 'Compared to what?'

Don't let life discourage you; everyone who got where he is had to begin where he was.
