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!

    THE LOVE TO PROGRESS

    Every day for me, is like a studied for exam, quiz and test,To be the best individual I can be, and to always give any given day my utmost best,   An honest A+ effort and treat it as an everyday mission to improve, These are the constant verbs and physical actions that I emphasize, and then press,   To be a better husband, father, son, and brother………and nothing less, It’s a journey through the excitements of life and the love to always progress,   Along with the learning and growing from the trials and tribulations within the days, weeks, months and yearly quests…   By: Dave Riley
