I lost a life…

A childhood I will never get back…

A baby girl given away in the hopes of a better life…

To a man who could only use her and abuse her…

I can’t change any of it…

Even though my mind and heart have tried to countless times…

I can’t undo what has been done…

All I can do is forgive them…

And let the pain and past go…

Learn how to live and love again…

Maybe the only closure I needed was to find the love within me…

The love never given to me..

But one I always needed…

I needed to love me…

I needed to take care of me…

When those around me failed to…

When walls of protection were really imprisonment…

Where love was a manipulation and a never ending game…

But the love I have now…

The love I give to myself….

No one could ever take that away from me….

And I know….

At the end of the day….

I have peace and true happiness in my heart…

Worthy of a love that’s real and unconditional…
