I thought I wasn’t “broken” when my tears denied just that. All the moments I thought were happy, turned out to be just sad.
I didn’t know how to feel on the ban of my own people. So I shut down my heart, and let myself wander for a while.
The coastlines may be clear, your cameras may be turned off; but they will always be watching, waiting for you to do wrong.
Do what’s right and trust yourself, tell your secrets to a stranger you never knew. I happened to tell my other self, for we’d never crossed paths before.
I love myself a little more today, for being accepting of myself. People forgot, but I’ll never forget, the day my heart turned to shreds.
