I don’t know how I arrived at this point…
My desire to be loved made me never want to disappoint.
But no child is perfect, no parent is ever fully prepared.
Pain can control every facet of your life when you’re truly scared.
In the past…
I would have held on to the tears and given a locket to my misery.
No matter how much I hurt…clinging onto the wounds won’t make them go away, and that’s not who I want to be.
To my former self, I need to let you know.
The only way to break free is to…
Finally let it go.
