Pen Poetry "Never a stroll down the back side of the Mountain"

"Never a stroll down the backside of the Mountain... "

My writing starts in journals, and then typed up when I sober up the next day, or week, or year that I open that beloved little diary next.  I can't remember when I wrote this poem exactly, I had a gruff voice in my head when I was writing it.  Looking back,  it was more about the pain, and struggle, and the walls that you feel around you, when you just want to pour yourself into your world as an artist.
