For most of my life I've been stuck 
on one side, a side filled with
anger, hate, anxiety and depression. 
Drowning in loss, I never knew
what direction to go. 

And then she opened a door.

From that open door came strands 
of light, they wrapped themselves 
around me, gave me strength to see 
the path that lay right in front of me.

Over the last few years I have 
fought to get back to the middle, to
balance the scale, to replace hate 
with love, anxiety with acceptance, 
and depression with happiness.

I know that this fight will last 
the rest of my life but it is a fight
I will not lose. 

I know this because she opened the door.
