The brightness of my light was taken hostage.
It flickered through the bars that was my home for so long.
When I escaped I had no idea where to go.
I made my own home where I wanted, and filled it with beautiful, lovely memories of a time when I felt whole.
There I lived until the time came I could build upon it with new memories of the way that I am, and my life now.
Every day I add bits of love to this place I call home…I.e., ME.
You stole a piece of me that I don’t even want back.
It is gone and it is yours to have because you needed it more than I.
When you betrayed me , you gave me the best gift you could have ever given me.
I would not have gotten strong in me , Or changed who I am as a person. I would have stayed stupid.
They say people drift into your life for a reason and I understand that now.
I am at peace in my heart.
I am happy.
And I did it by myself.
That is mine to own. Not yours.
I forgive you because I am SO much better for it. Some things in life are worth the wait anyways.
