I like the realization that you have come to in the present. It makes all that has gone before less subtle, confusing and controlling.

soul mates

Looking at far how I have come, and not to give up.

Now, here I stand, and see the true light of
things. Then, I used to swallow up the lies
you would give me. 1 comment

Then, I had a little voice inside my head, and
a gut feeling that no one seemed to believe. Now,
we take the time to mend the wounds that never
should have been made. 1 comment

Now, the fear is more fresh, but
awareness is lit anew. Then, the broken
promises I should have questioned.

Then, the tears I cried were painful,
and unnoticed. Now, the realization of
how far I have truly come. 1 comment

Now, the "mask" that used to be my
best friend is slowly losing its
grip on me.  Then, I sat in the shadow,
just watch the world to pass me by. 1 comment

Now, I'm standing to fight for my heart, and
not searching to know what was. Now I'm
living for what I can do to make this better.
Then, all I had to do was stand up
for what was right.
