It's taken me a while to get myself together
since i've been out.
I assumed the adjustment period would comprise
of getting used to metal utensils, the absence of an
underlying threat of being sent to solitary confinement
for standing too close to a woman, not having to use
two batteries and a snapped razor to light a cigarette,
being able to lock a door, use fire to cook food instead
of radioactive microwaves, being around animals and
But it's been a little bit more than that..
Adjusting to my own changes and how they
correlate with the outside world has been a huge task.
Although I don't see myself as being damaged from what
i've been through it has undoubtedly changed my perception
of people and this has caused many issues since i've been out.
Once again i am in a completely new environment,
weighing up what i can and can't control,
what is best for me,
how i can go about putting these things
into practice in the present moment,
The same applies to you.
