I grew up in a war zone…

Emotional battles and psychological games….

For a long time….

A normal life felt boring and too tame….

But the deeper I searched…

And the further I traveled within….

I knew in my heart I was still fighting a battle….

My mind believed I couldn’t win….

The past is a shadow in the sun…

But there’s only so far you can escape…

Only so far you can run….

This is my chance to embrace all my fears….

Compassionately loving myself and drying the last of my tears….

Every day is a gift I know…

Time to let the inner me show….
