Fell from the stars & into a war zone. Did I even have a chance when my fractured heart was infinitely afraid of being left alone? No I didn’t ask for this kind of life but it was given to me. In the past, I believed a martyr was all I would ever be.

Today I had a thought…& it wouldn’t leave. For the first time in my life there was more I wanted to achieve. I could see there was far more in me to believe.

I was a coward to stay in the dark & my misery became a false sense of security. It’s hard to leave your shadows behind when they’ve been your only company. But playing the role of a helpless victim, that’s never going to be me.

Breathe in more pain & I see an instinct to kill in his eyes. I should be afraid but there’s a part of me that will always fight back & defy.

I fought through hell to live a life of my own. Love will forever hold its throne.
