Image for the poem ~i'm feeling it~

~i'm feeling it~

the journey before me      
has been a long perilous one      
walking through the fire      
I am burned being born anew      
the ashes my war paint      
wearing it with pride      
picking myself up when I fall      
sojourning onward, homeward      
the scars marking my flesh      
badges of honor      
they tell I've lived      
that I survived to tell the tale      
drugs, whoredom      
it's made me who I am      
made me stronger, more compassionate      
the call of the streets still thrums in my heart      
feeling for those that still traverse those paths      
it's cold comfort when your pimp's        
Sadistic love is all you have      
still hopscotching through the past      
watching for the pitfalls of today      
I travel on hoping not to get tripped up again      
drugs still call my name, alcoholic I feel it        
the tombstones of where I've been      
all scrawled with my name      
there I died and yet I live
