I look into the mirror and what do I see? Is the person staring back smiling at me?
Is my soul happy with where I’m at in life? Or am I still battling with things deep inside?
Am I still focused on the opinions of others? But was I really placed on earth to please another?
Do I have love for the person that I am? Or am I waiting on love to define who I am?
If I crack open my heart what would there be? Would there be lessons or regrets lurking at me?
Am I truly satisfied with the person I’ve become? Or should I continue working on becoming that someone?
Am I living right with others and more importantly me? Cause when I stand before God I’ll be the one answering him.
Imagine having your head bashed in at 10 years old and throwing the memory into your stories untold.
How would you feel if that was you being abused? Now tell me whose afraid of the big bad wolf?
Late night running into the darkness of the night, but still too young to try and put up a fight.
And the street became her home for a little while. Living like an adult when she was just a child.
Now can you imagine the pain in that little girls heart? Hoping that somehow her life could restart.
All she had was prayer while begging God “please!” “take away all of this suffering from me.”
But I’m so proud of her and I hope she knows. She didn’t go down the road that they thought she would go.
Because seeing him hanging was a great horror, but that pained little girl turned into a warrior.
You see I’m practicing self love now. A few months back I was so close to a melt down.
But I finally saw the light. I rose above like a star during the night.
I always want to believe in people. I always find myself looking for the good in people.
They whisper about your success and they broadcast your demise. I weighed my options and I had to cut my ties.
That’s just the way life goes. What doesn’t flow, doesn’t flow.
They whither among us on a daily. They have no shame acting outright shady.
I got stabbed in my arm a few years back. But I swear it hurt more when a friend back stabbed.
And that’s why my circle is small. I was surrounded by people who wanted to see me fall.
They set up these traps and hope you stumble upon it. If anything I swear that I’ve learned from it.
I’m still that girl with a big strong heart, but nothing hurts more than snake friends in the grass.
