Those Days Are Behind Me

My life used to be
so dark and painful.
I was on a downward spiral
to the unknown.

My whole life revolved
around my feelings and emotions,
I could not function
no other way.

I spent many years
searching high and low
for anything resembling
happiness and fulfillment,

nothing ever worked out
according to my liking, 
something was always off.
Thank God those days are
behind me now.
