Dedicated to myself. I have come a long way. I AM grateful.
To have a genuine smile plastered upon my face once more is like a breath of fresh air. Once upon a time, I would always dream of being this euphoric and blissful. Once upon a time, people had the capability to manipulate me. Once upon a time, is a time no more. I am free. I am free from everyone who made me feel I had no virtue or like I wasn’t powerful enough to spread my own wings and soar. Time after time, I fought demons that would constantly clip on my wings. But when my wings were finally durable enough to help me take flight, I flew far far away from what used to be my life. A life that I often considered had no purpose. A life that I thought would never beam so bright. And just as the windows of my soul open, they witness a light that shines brighter than the star around which the earth orbits. They finally see how beautiful of a queen I really am. Be mindful that these are not the words that are egotistical, but words of feeling vigorous and triumphant. I dismiss any lingering thoughts of glancing back into what used to be me. I have a new life with new surroundings and new people. I feel real love sinking and swimming into the depths of my heart and soul. From this moment on, no one will ever make me feel like I am incompetent or weak. For I am too strong of a powerful, black queen and always will be.
i am free...
