Someday: A Poem

I may have lost myself somewhere along the way
But I’ll be back when the dawn breaks…someday.
Along my journey I walked into too many caves
And the darkness made me want my home
And to come back someday.
There were dragons to slay
Horrific dragons—I was afraid
But I slayed them
And loudly whispered amens
After praying to guide me back…someday.
I witnessed a hungry lion
And I fed him with guilt
But the innocence inside of me
Made me want to redeem myself someday.
As I wandered astray
I slowly found myself
And wearily asked the Lord for help
To guide me home someday.
A mistake is a mistake
Only if made more than once
But this journey wasn’t a mistake
Because I’ll come back with more strength…

My name is Tarah Lynn Hipple. I am twenty years old and am in college for psychology. My goal is to be a psychologist at the U of M Depression Center. I want to help others like I was helped. I was a puzzle and didn't know how to put the pieces together, and when I found out how I started to actually enjoy the breaths I took. I have been writing for ten years and have played the piano for thirteen years. It continues to amaze me when I sit down on the piano bench and I watch my fingers play a song. My family means everything to me and my dog is like my child. I love spending time with my friends. Through my writing, you see the "panicky" me and then you'll see how far I've come.
