Rediscovering passion

A book, memoirs, poetry –

words strewn across pages

new and old

I was so frightened I had lost

the passion that drove me,

the ability to put meaningful thoughts

to paper – so others could understand

and react in their own ways.

But Brain Damage can be retrained

if given a chance.

Three years of emptiness,

hurt, despair, fear

can immobilize you.

This is not my greatest poem

but I just needed to say I’m alive

my brain is still there

and there are words in my head

just waiting for emergence.
