Poem written in darkness


Writing has always been something I've enjoyed, especially during some of my darkest moments. This poem was written about a month before I hit rock bottom earlier this year and admitted myself into treatment. At the time I felt it was way too vulnerable to share. Now I feel like its a true testament to how far I've come. I was struggling very much with depression and consumed by anorexia yet I still felt a small glimmer of hope that maybe things could get better. Please excuse the quality of the recording and the 'dammit' in the middle when I messed up. Adds character. :-)
