crumbs are for the birds…and you love, deserve so much more
The day I stopped fighting the battle is the day I won the war
I’ve rehearsed every line practiced in my sleep Exactly what I’ll say just to find some peace
The day is drawing near another rabbit hole I slid All because of your undoing it is time to close the lid
My light was dimmed not even a small spark These gloves are swinging punching in the dark
Mystified in misery anger fluid and abound Not one more fight left crashing to the ground
Standing tall before my eyes wiping away the tears Finding it hard to believe I wasted so many years
Pausing only a brief moment in this singular display of pride I raised my hands up in the air taking it all in stride
My flesh for you is no longer I take it all back No human should suffer the likes of your own lack
And with a deep breath I could never quite swallow I took my first step and chose not to follow

Somewhere along blurred lines, my self worth was solely dependent upon everyone else's opinions besides mine. Past life would keep dictating this way of “living” for a very long time. Like a brick pathway, my belief system was cemented in and it established a flawed premise of which I had learned to stick with and live by. I have since come to understand that a belief is just a thought I continue to have.
So brick by brick, I’ve begun the demolition and reconstruction during this process of becoming the most authentic version of me. For a lifetime this far, I have accepted the unacceptable, tolerated the intolerable and have remained in places far beyond their expiration date. After all, I had to stay with all my broken pieces. Now, I have been stifled for far too long. Freedom has bestowed upon me the use of my voice at last. Won't you join me on a new roller coaster of life as I navigate my way through this next part of my journey?
I promise to share my experience, strength and hope from my heart with depth and truth. I guarantee I will write about difficult things, struggles and even pain, yet in the darkness a little light glows. Through inspiration, a glimmer will shine because I want to leave you a little better than when you first found me.
