Looking Back & Forward


June 28, 2021

Today is a day that I have reflected… on the last year of my life. A lot has changed, and I am happy to say that I am not bitter, but I still push down my pain as this is a hard habit to give up. So, for this upcoming year I want to allow myself to walk through the pain as soon as I can, as much as I can and hopefully stop running away from it. I want to be in a place to celebrate my victories and let go of my losses. I want to fill my life with people that are not afraid of me to be myself and leave behind the ones that keep me in a box. I have outgrown the box of contentment, the cage of carelessness. I cannot drown in red rivers because of anyone that is unwilling for me to be me. For the ones that could not hear my voice and only wanted it to get louder, it will not be louder. Only stronger like the roar of a lioness. I will be heard. I will be seen. I am becoming the greatest me.

A year has passed

To this very day

A journey of danger

Laughter and play

Discovering life

As I’ve never known

Figuring out

That I am so strong

Courageous and brave

Great Wisdom was found

Through pain and tears

Unbelievably profound

To find my way

Slowly seeking

Purpose is true

Constant critiquing  

Purples & Blue

A beautiful life

Waiting for me

Enduring strife

What will be will be…

Much Love Much Life
