I ran away to hide, to escape the eternal pain & grief I held inside. I never knew my healing was in the acceptance of everything lost to me. My life now meeting the place between free will & beautifully designed destiny.
I can finally sleep at night without fearing you will be there. I’m beginning to trust in people again, in their welcoming kindness & selfless care.
I built walls & iron fences around a motivation of unrelenting force. I had to unlearn the war games of love & know it was never something to steal, use, or coerce.
He couldn’t ever see my humanity, but he could never see his own. I doubt real love and acceptance was in the blueprint he had been shown.
I look within to guide my steps in this life, who knows where it may lead. We all have our wounds & we all feel it when we bleed.
I’m in the middle of my scars & this time I feel no fear. My own voice of compassion & love is the only one I now hear.
