these scars along my heart…will take time to heal.
a lonely, lost girl who never learned how to embrace the way she feels.
parents who were a million miles away…
food and sleep to get through another impossible day…
how differently it could have been if…they had helped along the way.
but there’s no way to return to the past…only now can she make some changes to the meaning of what love is.
memories and memories…no longer the ones she has to miss.
living and breathing…
slowly and for the first time on her own.
no longer afraid.
no longer alone.
