Who Helped Me Get My Life Back

Not Alone by David Kiesz 

published in Fall 2011 Issue of Empowerment Magazine

When I think of where I've been, The good times and the bad On a scale of 1 to 10, Either way, I'm glad
'Cause I'm not alone as I'm reaching for the phone
You really care, your voice is there, my comfort zone.

 
Sometimes when I'm lost, crushed beneath the pain
Though I can't afford the cost, I just smile and play the game
But there's a healing place where I cannot pretend
Your smiling face, your hearts embrace heals me again

 

So even when the storm is strong and I'm deaf to my own cry
I faintly hear a distant song and I simply can't deny
That I'm not alone, even when I'm on my own
Your gentle touch is much to much too let me roam.

 

After losing his American dream and his health to religious fanaticism, David started over with a 'can do' attitude and surrounded himself  with like-minded friends. With the help of Mental Health America of Northern California, he landed a job traveling California as an analyst of mental health services. He also helps shoot a TV show which airs every other Saturday night on (Comcast) Access Channel 17 at 7 p.m. His passion is the use of music, poetry, and comedy as forms of therapy for others and himself.

 

David co-facilitates a Performing Arts/Sing-Along group at the Wellness and Recovery Center (WRC). The first love song he wrote is actually a ‘thank you’ to all who encouraged him on his new journey..
