Stronger Than Ever October 2, 2014
I spiralled downward onto the debris that was my life broken and scarred to the marrow still I rise from their ashes stronger than ever Plagued with nameless dread drenched in sweat pounding heart and jittery limbs terrified terror clouding my days; darkening my path still I break free from their grips stronger than ever
