Inspirational Thoughts

My name is David and I wanted to give a little background for people to understand where I’ve come from and aspire to be. I’m a 32 year old man with a beautiful wife and 2 wonderful children. A 9yr old boy and 4yr old girl. They mean the world to me and if it weren’t for them I wouldn’t be where I am today.

Since the age of 14 I was diagnosed with a bad case of bi polar disorder with aggravated depression. I was prescribed numerous medications throughout the years to help with it, and meanwhile I had gotten into using drugs along with them,which slowly but surely sent me into a downward spiral. Eventually after years and years of drug abuse and not taking medication correctly I had made life for my entire family very difficult. My mood swings and depression had gotten so severe that I was pushing them further and further away from me, without even realizing it myself. To make a long story short I almost lost everything that was so dear to me. My wife, my children, our beautiful house, and of course my dignity. Through my faith, prayers, and a whole lot of hope I made it through all of these extreme struggles. I thank God everyday that I had my family there as my extraordinary support system to guide me through those toughest of times.

To help me reflect on the past and present I have been writing poetry to rediscover the man I have always dreamed of being. A wonderful father, husband, son and brother that is a pleasure to have around. It helps to describe and explain what I was going through during these tough times and my journey through a grateful recovery. I describe it as my life’s recollections through poetry connections of collections. Hopefully people that have maybe gone through the same thing or have had a family member dealt with addiction and depression can get some helpful insight and maybe a sense of their own motivational inspiration. Enjoy, and I hope that these poems in posts can also entertain and give a few moments of happiness and clarity during any given day. Thank you very much for reading it is greatly appreciated!

 
  • DNA AND CHROMOSOMES

    DNA AND CHROMOSOMES

      DNA and chromosomes,…. I feel these poem’s passion like it’s Embedded within my bone marrow’s chemical makeup, It’s like a form of my epidermis Undertone,   I choose to use my reflections in text, It’s my formation of a magnified, Microscopic, Typed microphone,  That sets a soothing and relaxing tone,   I examine and evaluate myself very closely, Making sure it’s only positivity that I produce and therefore bestow, A self inventory toolbox that has helped fix me, It’s constantly on patrol, Composing with a peace of mind is  How I constantly freedom write and roam, Outspoken devotion’s fully opened, With sincere emotion’s adventure’s being shown, known, and owned,   Flights of navigation through my thoughts as a second home, I openly navigate along my hardship’s roads, Escapades of my natural history and first hand experiences, My honesty biography, An expedition’s stroll in scroll, Biographical,  It adds to  How I’ve Learned,  Churned and grown,   I speak about hard miles of severe Disappointments that I unfortunately went and drove, Literally and considerably the  Toughest miles flown, It’s dusted off and explained up close and personal, Then it’s etched and passionately set into papyrus, Finally being placed upon this laptop’s blogging tablet stone.

  • MAKE MY FAMILY PROUD

    To have made my whole Family proud….. Man, do I love that subject,  Thought, Gift and sound, The sight of seeing their happiness, for Their lost Family member has returned, And finally come back around,   Through miraculous Blessings from Above, my Dignity and self respect have been gathered up, Rejoined,  And thankfully found, Hills of marvelous mounds of happiness and harmony, It’s the tranquility of this landscape that makes my whole world go ’round,   Family is much more than just a word to me, It has much BIGGER meaning than just being a simple or even proper noun, The love felt and shared between us only grows upward, Higher and higher, No gravitational pull, There’s no way for it to ever be pulled down,   That same Love that surrounds is so tightly woven, So close-knitted now that it could never again be unwound, It’s so sincere, So serene, It makes my heartbeats do a dance, With the most perfect steadiness of pounds,   Pound for pound it’s just plain amazing, It impresses me immensely and also astounds, Their love is so concrete and distinct, If you are looking for an adjective at this time….. I will most certainly use PROFOUND,   With their supportive involvement through my struggles, it Has kept […]

  • LIVING LIFE CLEAN

    LIVING LIFE CLEAN

      The way I lived before was a hazard, Causing extreme harm to myself, It was a life-style of pure pollution, Trying to self medicate myself like There was no other alternative, No answer, No logical satisfactory solution,   Seeming like there was no cure for my disease, My disorder, I was in a constant state of loneliness and confusion, No end to that rage and madness, Or any healing that could end all that depression, Feeling so low and lost, like I was a downward spiral’s tragic conclusion,   Having a happy life seemed so distant, A forever dream and hope that would never come true, Just a hazy mirage, Combined with a foggy filled illusion,   The happiness and joy was always forced, It almost seemed like being happy was an awkward trespassing, And an invading intrusion, Chemically iMbaLaNCeD, I was always fighting myself, Using other chemicals that were harmful to my health in Order to try to simmer it down and dilute it,   Couldn’t argue with the fact that I was headed downhill for sure, There was really no way to even dispute it, Causing my own self destruction, Caused the Family to be in turmoil, Constantly butting heads with me and feudin’,   Then one giant […]
