Most days are good…

Even if my mind runs through the could and shoulds…

But there are times that hit me hard in the heart…

And the emotional intensity paralyzes me in the pain of feeling like I’m right back at the start…

I can never forget how far I’ve come but when the sorrow sinks in…

I can only look forward and let go so a new life can flourish and begin…

The lowest days make me thankful for the higher ones…

Sometimes this life and all its struggles…the weight can feel like a thousand tons…

The moment I took you off the pedestal..I could see the human side…

Sitting quietly with no agendas…just no more reasons to run or to hide…

I can forgive you and forgive me…

Letting go…the only way I found to be free…

Sleep…to escape…from reality…

My entire world shattered when you turned and abandoned me…

I push everyone away to protect myself…

But in the end…

True courage was admitting I wanted and needed your love and help…

It’s a tough world out there…

My sanctuary is to keep being kind..

Keep love first and always care…
