The Journey Ahead

5th January 2015

The Road to Recovery is hard work and takes commitment.
‘The Journey Ahead' tells peaks something of the decision I made to recover from Anorexia and what this might entail.

The Journey Ahead

A Journey lies ahead of me,
I can travel it, step back, or remain;
I must do half the toiling,
I must embark upon some pain.
But there's pleasure from that journey, For light shines on the path -
A hope, a future, happiness,
Reason to smile and laugh.
The choice is mine to make it,
Only I can make that move;
Help is there to guide me,
Counsel, advise and soothe.
Yet the path is hard to conquer,
The journey a struggle and fight;
Yet I know that at the outcome
I encounter happiness and 'light'.
If I remain I will go backwards,
For there is no standing still,
For sliding down i all that happens
If you don't push up a muddy hill.
The decision I can't quite make yet,
I must consider how I might cope;
I need assurance, courage, honesty
before I am take the steps and live my hope!
