Finding Myself

Image Source: Magpie Tales

Today I can smile with my heart
I have now let go of the fight
I have made peace with my existence
Like the sun, I shall shine bright

I shall no longer hide from the world
A broken heart cannot break me
I have erased the bad memories
With hope filled eyes, I can now see

I am an important person myself
I do not need someone by my side
I shall learn to live on my own
Taking whatever comes in my stride

Today I woke up feeling great
A sense of independence comes from within
I put on my best dress and make up
Loving myself shall no longer be a sin

I have hid behind a man enough
Now is the time for me to rise
My lips are adorned bright red
Now smiles shall replace the cries

I can feel the warm breeze outside
The peace within me makes me dance
I shall grab this with both hands
I will not let go of this second chance

I am on a vacation all alone
This alien room is now my friend
I shall fill it with wonderful memories
Every emotion shall now be penned

I shall live now feeling free
I shall be my own magic elf
During this tumultuous experience
I have finally found myself
