From Darkness to Joy

Day 28 is almost over, and I finally penned a poem. I must admit that my creativity is waning. I hope I make it 3 more days. Today's prompt is Split in Two. Once again, I have made it personal, addressing my mental health struggles. I hope my words make sense.

Like a tree felled
by an iron axe,
so I fell
into overwhelming

Split in two,
I tried to hide
behind a mask.
Broken, despairing;
I cried for help.

As a seed planted
in fertile soil,
I was given a chance
to thrive.

Flourishing under
loving care,
I grew in stature.
Now I cry
for joy.
