I have been Crippled by Insecurities and played Slave to perfection’s impossible Allure .
I have broken myself in order to try & appear whole and withered myself to better fit in the palms of others.
And, you see, it took breaking to the point that I thought I was beyond mending, beyond Hope, to realize that nothing (no one) is ever too far gone to find Redemption .
It was then I was reborn from my Ashes and was able to grow a new from Betwixt each & every crack .
It was then I learned that the Ocean does not apologizes for it’s depth & the Mountains do not seek forgiveness for the Space they take and so ,
NEITHER SHALL I . . .👐
I have found this Life way too short to harbour energy that does not benefit me .
To hold within me Contempt, Negativity, Judgement or Disrespect –
to hold onto anything that does not facilitate some form of Growth .🙌
And whilst there are some pains that will be forever rooted in these bones,
from them I promise to always bloom .
And for every mistake I am still destined to make,
I swear that I will carry the weight of their lesson on shoulders held straight with Pride .✌️
For, you see,
I have fallen from Grace (Time & Time again) & found myself buried beneath Rock bottom .
I have tumbled from the heights of Happiness & Love and stumbled through the depths of Sorrow & Despair .
I have Navigated this Life the only way that I know how and forever come out the Victor
No matter how high the odds seemed stacked against me . 🤟
So, I will not take a single second, breath or beat of this heart for granted.
I will cherish this Gift and try my best to be a Human of which I can be Proud .😇
