Being afraid of my own shadow for most of my life, Decisions I’ve made causing me nothing but strife.
Most tears I’ve shed were caused my oneself, I decided to put everything on the shelf.
Years I’ve taken to forgive but not forget, Those lessons I’m learning I’ve yet to perfect.
So I dance and fight the demons away, Hoping to shadow box them at bay. An ongoing battle I must fight, While in search of my best light.
I may never be the person others wish for me to be, I’ve learned that’s not my battle that’s theirs as I’m working on loving me.
So I will continue on the journey as I spar, With a strong heart guiding me like that midnight star.
