Nettles

 

 

Through the nettles my journey started, stinging my feet but nothing mattered. I felt nothing in my head I was always in a daze, soon I realised this was no faze. I didn't care what others thought, all I wanted was another drop, soon a drop became a few my family and friends never knew. As the counting stopped in how many? It changed to days weeks and every penny, and then I admitted my problem was real I asked for help and a miracle to heal,  that's when I was sent to a place called Daca where there I found the things that matter understanding compassion a friend and a natter, and as this short story comes to an end, my journey through the nettles was inspired by a friend.
