Artist's Way

What I Accomplished in a Year

by Wenona Gardner

Last year I had lost my boyfriend

due to domestic violence from

his family and his neglect.

I was homeless and

I had a mental breakdown

in a mental hospital.

I ended up in a group home

in the ghetto side of town.

But look at me now.

I have a full time job

as a Certified Peer Support and Wellness Specialist.

I have a circle of friends in recovery.

I celebrated my birthday instead of crying

alone last year’s birthday.

I have come a long way.

I have made huge amount of progress.

I am blessed and looking for my own place

with a Region 6 voucher.
