blamed the troubles of my life for a long time on you…

then woke up to realize the drama and lies I tied myself to…

humble my heart to find the love I was missing…

something different now in the real way we’re kissing…

and I created and re-created the nightmares that were familiar and “safe”…

but I’m my worst enemy in my mind and this impossible place…

it’s a strange thing when fear and panic become all you love and repeat…

hiding forever because my true flawed and broken self I could never fully meet….

until life came at me…and wouldn’t let up until my ego took a seat…

I may not have been the one who started the trauma and abuse in my memories…

but all those tears and pain and scars…they never determined the person I would be….

and I’m seeing clearer now…when I learn how to love each and every part of me….

may love and kindness always be what you truly see…
