Letting go off the day
Lying in your arms
A ripple effect up my spine
I let it all take me in
No more heavy traditions weighing me down
No more clasps leaving me bruised and blue
No more hues that never suited my soul
I run faster, always towards you
This time I won’t let the unforgiving path deter me
Just promise, you won’t let go.
Soaking in exhaustion and pain, I run back to you
Believing in dreams that never faded away.
Bruised and bloody they have stories to tell
So, I write them all for my minions to read.
Torn and rough, walked thousands of miles
Because quitting was never a choice
Scared I step forward, believing
In the journey and the goal.
I feel it everywhere
Even the pains that had numbed over the decades
Only to reopen what never healed..
Today I sit next to you
Ready to tell you the stories I have lived alone.
