Bitter No More

by Poe_t

Once again
I'm asking to be heard.
I'm sheltering
the man within
and destroying
all exterior stimulations.
I'm escaping
the present ecosystem of neglect
and finding contentment
in my own private Eden.
I'm cancelling the negative
and surrounding my existence
with the luxury
of genuine friendships.
I've stopped
watching the clock
and began taking advantage of
days, months, and years.
Pressure and pain
but this time,
I'm armed with one weapon,
My blind chasings
of earthly dreams
have entered reality.
So instead,
I dream,
and rejoice
in the living.
I continue 
to exist as man
and search,
then wait for 
what's mine 
to appreciate.
I'm satisfied,
and bitter no more.
