I’m not the girl who needs to be saved anymore.
I’m the girl who left a mentally abusive relationship.
I’m the girl who loved a man more than Herself.
I’m the girl who found the betrayal in texts.
I’m the girl who walked away.
Walked away from every future goal.
I’m the girl who cried her self to sleep at night for nine months.
I’m the girl who tried to love again but only found more betrayal.
I’m the girl who wanted to end her life.
Who thought I love you was strong enough to heal any would.
Who believed in the unbelievable people.
Who cut herself trying to heal others wounds.
I want you to know love is real.
Love is real.
And it may not be found in the drugs you do to block out the thoughts of the image you considered love.
Or the cigarette that helps you get by.
Or your friend with benefits who uses you.
It only takes one step.
And once you take that step don’t look back.
Because it’s worth it.
I’m the girl who let go of 3 1/2 years of memories.
I’m the girl who let go of the lies.
I’m the girl who cried herself to sleep at night.
And I said no more.
And I found myself.
And I found peace.
But most of all.
I have the truest love life could have ever offered me.
The love I dreamt of finding.
And he was worth the wait.
the strength of leaving behind the past.
You were worth it all.
