I had a glimpse of my old life today…

And I have no idea how I ever lived that way.

Headaches and heart breaks.

The only way to change your life and self is to awake.

He gave me poison and said it was sweet.

I learned how to find a different kind of peace.

Where I’ve been, it’s not where I’m going anymore…

The life I once lived…was never the life I was meant for.

I look in the mirror and I no longer see the girl he wanted me to be…

Now, my reflection is of a woman who has her own courage and love, that is what I fully see.

I want you to know, you never had anything to do with who I am and where I’m heading.

Your presence in my life is one that I’m now leaving behind me, the shades and shadows I once wore of you shedding…
