Begins To Flow
You said that I'd run and run I did,
in a bid to shield my heart just like when I was a kid.
Laying here for the first time I see,
I'm not yet ready for another to love me.
Freedom of speech at last is mine,
I've kept schtum for more than a long time.
My heart speaks volumes but has learnt to listen to my mind,
as my past fears begin to unwind.
Before my very own pretty green eyes,
so these loose ends my hands fastly ties.
Unexpertly as I feel them once more come undone,
causing me to stand still and no longer run.
So unsure what I was running from or too?
Never truly understood what it was I thought I knew.
Trying my hardest to fathom out each part,
of my shielded still wounded heart.
Memories haunt me in a bid to make me cry,
not yet succeeded but every day they try.
To break my strong will and leave me in shreds,
but I'm always ready to tie up their loose threads.
I've chose to walk alone for the time being,
steady to the beat of my own as my self worth I am seeing.
Taking one step at a time as I go,
as my love for me at last BEGINS TO FLOW!!!
