my mistakes are beautiful tattoos across my bare skin…

my flaws carve depth and meaning further in…

there are moments I’m selfish in what I think I need…

times I struggle not to give into the allure of fear and greed.

the path towards love is bittersweet…

when your true self you finally do meet.

I ran away from her…as fast and as long as I could.

at times I do the exact opposite of what I know I should…

no one wants to admit when they break and bleed…

the more I tried to control my life, the less I could succeed.

it’s not all about me…

there are more important priorities than what I alone need…

selfishness disguised as “love” never finds a way to be free…

I put myself first when I should have let you win…

fighting long after the war, blaming you for how it all begins…

and I’m not proud of what I did to hold onto the past…

the moments I lost, were the ones I wanted the most to last…

it’s time to put this dream to an end…

it’s better if I did what I could to mend…

the brokenness inside of me…

allowed love to finally be.
