A life of fear was never made for me,

You once controlled my mind & molded me in who to be.

You say what you have to say,

To my true self I’ll never betray.

Fairy tales & heroes of my childhood a little too cliché.

Forgiveness in confessions & I’ve accepted the life I’ve made.

I stopped seeking your validation & love when I’ll never be perfect in your eyes.

If I’ve told you once, I’ve played out the worst case scenario a million & one times.

I’m loved, I’m loved, I’m loved….I’ll memorize these words every day.

I’ll face my own shadows & in my nightmares I’ll find you there to slay.

The only enemies we have are the ones our hearts create.

Love won this war long ago, fear will only know one final fate.
