Breathing steadily is my heart,
as I lay alone in the dark.
Not craving love as I've learnt to love me,
the first step to make so that others will see.
That for myself I have respect,
for I know my heart is vulnerable and I must protect.
This vital organ of mine that was once bruised,
but I won't let another part of me again be abused.
For I deserve better and this I know,
I will come through any knock or blow.
That threatens to take the breath from me,
or makes an attempt suppressing my heart that's free.
Free to love, cherish and adore,
as the inner love I hold can now soar.
Bound no longer as I know my worth,
for my own happiness I'd move heaven and earth.
No need for guidance to seek,
as my inner strength enfolds the old me that was weak.
Wordlessly speaking a thousand words to me,
for I now know it's okay to be.
My own true self that they all tried to break,
but as hard as they try they'll never take.
This glowing heart and pure soul,
as for the first time in my life I know I'M WHOLE!!!
