crumbs are for the birds…and you love, deserve so much more
You taught me things about being your best Loving myself was far from the rest
You showed me what it was like to serve only you To be selfless everyday pulling me through
I surrendered to your laws You magnified all my flaws
Convincing me you were after exceptional When nothing less than perfection was acceptable
You were a blessing and then it was cursed Everything calculated everything rehearsed
How you became the broken man I met long ago Baffles me still in this game of the unknown
I’m hurting from this pain left in ruins of my heart Wishing you would just stop tearing me apart
This unrelenting sadness devours me whole Retreating to the depths of my wounded soul
Some days I taste the freedom from your grasp Others I awaken and feel like this will last and last
Won’t you stop this insanity I don’t wish to play Let me move forward stop taking my breath away
I had to go I couldn’t remain In the dark and dismal place to glorify your name
What’s done is over put it all to rest White flag of surrender this is not a test
All the while I felt the laceration Breathless and shattered forever your complication

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.
