Learning to live
Is learning to give
Peice of your heart
To those you had been apart
Looking into your past
Without using the thing you did last
Walking away from the old
Without growing cold
You learn to live for today
Without running away

Jillian Craven
I wrote this poem while living in a domestic violence rehab. I was learning a lot about my life, and changing my life, while still staying true to myself.  I have always had a history of running from my problems or ignoring  them. So today, when life gets tough, I go to this poem as a reminder that life has it's up's and downs, but you can't let it get to you.
