Welcome to the Raft
Welcome my journey of change and perspective.
As a young girl struggling with addiction and mental illness I often felt I was alone in the world, a Lone Raft. The struggles with my peers and family, and the traumas I endured that I kept to myself and my journals for nearly a decade became my eventual undoing when my raft became to heavy for me to steer alone, and I began to sink, and it almost cost me my life.
This blog is a collection of those journals, stories, poems; past and present. This is my life, as I know it. How much really happened or what has become my reality from the events fabricated from my delusional states, I may never know. What I do know is these are the memories in my head. These are the life events that happened the way I lived them, the way I perceived them. And the way I am working to change the path that I was on to life a better life.
I hope you can find some inspiration here and share in the journey of change and perspective as I navigate the waters of life as a Lone Raft.
I am lost at sea, searching for an oasis to call home.
I take shelter on passing ships, making idle chatter, and sample what life could be.
The sun sets, the tides change, as I move on.
Searching, for something else.
I can see the shore, but never reach it. How I wish I could.
My lone raft is lost at sea. Searching, waiting, wishing,
Someone, something will rescue me.
