I once counted all the ways you hurt me…

Never knew it was slowly and surely imprisoning the part that needed to be free…

All the injustice and wrongs played on repeat in my mind…

And everywhere I looked…you were all I could ever find…

But as the seasons came and left….and the days turned into months…turned into years…

I learned it was no longer you that was keeping me tied and bound to all my darkest fears…

I had to be the one to heal those wounds and dry my own tears…

So where once ego and pain stood…

I abandoned all my what ifs and shoulds…

To find a better place of peace…

Building my own life…

Piece by piece…
