Dig deep

Dig up the bones but leave the soul alone
searching deeper then you thought you’d go

Follow your gut but leave the emotions alone
Show bravery in the darkest of times
but run to the light before you feel alone

By taking the road to your left
you leave the right road for your mistakes

keep those skeletons hung in your closet
with the door shut tight
you made a choice to take the road to your right
but you leave the road to your left alone

Dig up the bones but leave the soul alone
the closet is knee-deep full of regrets
as your demons eat at your sins
but you have no regrets
for they are tightly closed up
in closets full of old skeletons from long ago

Let go of your skeletons
and they will walk alone
then you’ll have room for a new wardrobe
dig up the bones but leave the soul alone

About Amanda D Shelton

Welcome Bat Brat's. I am the author of this page. I write poetry, I also create digital art. I am disabled I suffer from high functioning autism, cellular nerve damage, Dystonia, and Muscle dystrophy. My writing is a reflection of my thoughts and experiences. I blog because I love writing. I write because it's the way I learned how to express myself. I have difficulty relating to people. Poetry makes it possible for me to learn how to communicate. I have been told I am exhausting to speak to because I have a lot to say. My IQ is above 200. I was diagnosed at the age of 33 with high functioning autism and Autistic Savant Syndrome. I make friends very easily because I don't have boundaries and I am not shy. I am very honest and welcoming. I love people and animals. I always look forward to writing in my blog Gothic Realms | Dark Visions In The Night. I hope to see you there. Feel free to leave a comment and like my posts. Until we meet again I will be waiting eagerly and patiently.
