I’m still grieving the loss of the life I used to live…

I’m still mourning the loss of the family we once had…

But the pain flows from my heart hitting the harshness of reality….

The family we had was broken to begin with…long before it all fell apart…

What hurt me the most was the absence of love growing up…

The silence and silent tears, the pain hidden in the dark…

A thousand miles of distance and fake smiles…

It cuts deep and the scars are still healing…

But when all is said and done….

I’m giving myself this time to heal…

To embrace the brokenness inside of me and letting myself fully feel…

Because my life is priceless…

And I had to learn how to see…

All the love and worth was always there…

Within me…
