Never too Late


I believed I have had my darkest day
when my daughter was made to stay with her dad.
I believed I have had my darkest day
when I had to much to drink and to many pills in my hand.
I believed I have had my darkest day
when I had to give my son away.
I believed I have had my darkest day
when I was kicked out of my sister's house
and had no where else to stay.
I believed I have had my darkest day
when I was at a homeless shelter and overdosed
with the ambulance on the way.
I believed I have had my darkest day
when I had to leave the crack house to go to
the front door of the recovery place.
I believed I found what I needed.
Then 16months after I was clean and sober
I was engaged to be marred.
2 weeks later I believed I have had my darkest day
when I was diagnosed with breast cancer.
Then I realized I had no more dark days in my life
because my life just started and was not going
to end at that time at that moment.
I have been cancer free for almost four years.
Always remember it is never to late to love.
