Day 16 of  #OctPoWriMo
Prompt: In-Depth

Driving a boat in Steamboat Springs, CO.
I have navigated to where I am today.
To go back just few years
There is some to tell from the tears
To look back on those days, is just a daze.
I'd rather not go through that maze.
I know that what happened, was just a phase.
But because of where I am today, I give praise.
I have learned to appreciate each new day.
If I hadn't met your gaze,
I wouldn't notice today's sun rays.
I wouldn't have found a different way.
I no longer need to look back that way.
The darkness is still there, at bay.
But my place is not there, I say.
Nothing can make me sway.
For once I do not need to look away
I am here to stay.
