she looked to him as a hero…

until she found the hero within herself.

she needed to hear her own voice…

believe in her own mind.

trust in her heart to guide her along the way.

so she…

practiced a little more compassion to the harshness internalized over the years.

and she was a little more loving to the mistakes and regrets alongside her insecurities and fears.

until one day…

she woke up not feeling broken and empty anymore.

she had healed and firmly shut the past doors.

she knew what she offered the world and dismissed

all she had been taught and told.
