Awaken

Heavenly Skies Photo By James Ward ©

This is my very first piece of writing, it may not be perfect but it was from my heart, it is fictional, but was inspired by so many that have or do suffer every day.

Today I woke up to the sound of birds outside my window.

I stretched and looked over to see my wife.

Instead I saw nothing but the pillow where she laid her head.

Memories of her came rushing back followed by the realization that she was gone.

I walked outside and sat down in my rocker, now watching the birds that woke me to their song.

I see my children playing in the yard chasing butterflies. Their curly hair blowing in the wind.

But as I watched they began to fade away, along with the birds and their song.

The smile I had while watching my girls started to fade and a chill came over my body.

My head dropped like a weight towards the ground. I noticed there was no breeze, no sounds of any kind.

I stood once again and began to walk inside to the kitchen. I leaned over the sink and turned on the cool water to wash my face.,

I tightened my body for the shock of the cold water, but when it met my face I felt nothing.

I now felt very scared of what was happening to me so I rushed to the bed in order to calm myself and to figure out what was happening

I felt something grasp my hand and I heard someone calling my name.

This time when I opened my eyes I saw a figure that I could only assume was God looking down at me.

I couldn’t move at all, the only thing I could do is utter the word yes.

The figure then spoke to me. My son I love all my children as I know you love yours.

you now lay here broken from the things you have put into your body.

While you slept I gave you visions of things you still hold dear to your heart.

I will heal you and give you a second chance, BUT hear me when I say, the visions you had were real. And if you do those things again it will be for the last time.

I will not take the things you love from you, but I’ll take you from them.

This was the day I became clean and sober

Life is so short and the thought of leaving my children as broken as I have been was something I could never do.

PLEASE FIND THE POWER WITHIN YOURSELF TO BREAK THE CHAIN.
