30 years later and this whole time I defended the wrong mindset…

Life is brighter when it’s not only about what you can selfishly get.

I lived by his rules and I only could capture regrets.

Sometimes it’s better to forgive and try to forget.

Under fear, your heart is in a prism of hell.

But with love, you can’t be locked away in this kind of cell.

I used to play the games he forced me into…

Trauma does something lasting to you.

But I had to learn….it’s better to be brave and kind.

If you lose your ego and “it’s all about me” mentality, wholeness is what you will eventually find.

Giving without expectation of return is beautiful and rare.

What takes my breath away is when you have no other intentions but to generously care.

Love is all I hope to ever continue to share.

My life may have been lost to shadows in the past.

But there’s no darkness that will ever have the power to forever last.

If I live with any principle, let it be to endlessly be kind.

A different dream now kept in my mind.
