The Long Road to Sanity: OctPoWriMo 2019, Day 27

Days apart from myself, moving by sheer will,

Locked away from family, want to go home.

Anxiety constant, no help from the pills.

Fear I will remain in this strange world alone.

How did I get here, this dark place of despair?

Will I find peace and completeness anywhere?

Breakthrough occurred when I finally let go

Of the belief that I had control of life.

Trying to keep pain at bay, I did not know,

Will not prevent you from trouble and strife.

The illusion of control, you will find

Will ultimately tire your body and mind.

Today, I take time to rest body and soul,

To do activities that keep me sane.

Accepting that God alone is in control

Has saved me from constant despair and pain.

I have real worries, not imagined ones,

And when night comes, for me, the day is done.

Written for OctPoWriMo 2019, Day 27. Prompt is How did I get here. The poem today is an Ottava Rima.
