Used to live my life….

In a black & white fantasy….

Where the world was everything…

I needed and wanted it to be…

But that’s not what living is…

When you’re a slave to your own harmful tendencies…

I made excuses for why I could never…

Break free….

But there was a part within…

Where I wasn’t able to believe….

I could be happy without such misery….

Such a beautiful…

And worn tragedy….

Tied forever to…

The darkest parts of me….

Comfortable prisons….

Even safer jails…

But in comparison to real love….

My old life could never compare….

A loving life requires you to let go….

Forgive….

And so importantly….

Just live…
