my father left us…

for another women….

broken families and shattered homes…

I sit with the regret of ever chasing a married man…

I guess in my heart I was trying to prove…

there was something in me worth staying for…

he left a thousand times before…

he finally didn’t come home…

I won’t walk down this aisle anymore…

not just because it isn’t right…

but because it’s not who I want to be….

she may have wrecked our family…

maybe it was cracked long before she came along…

holding onto bitterness and tears…

will poison a good heart…

I wanted to prove I was enough…

for him to stay….

but he left anyways…

in the end…

after his departure…

I learned…

the greater love was not ever going to be from him…

but from me…

from me…
