Bad cookies that were an obstacle to overcome,
I leave far behind me not taking a crumb.
Though they took the biscuit my strength causes them to crumble,
as through this sorry mess my own way out I fumble.
Realising at long last that is not the way it's meant to be,
knowing full well in my heart there's a better day for me.
So with unfaltered faith I make my next move,
as I'm a stronger person to myself I prove.
Negative views fall on my deaf ears,
as no more will I live suppressed by my fears.
Happiness beckons for me to play,
letting me know it's all going to be okay.
Knowing for certain I've made mistakes,
but now I know that this is what makes.
Me a stronger lady as I experience the pain,
tasting the aftermath when I've been blessed to feel the rain.
Defying it to break the wonder that is me,
standing my ground as the light I now see.
That will guide me to my happy place,
as my insignificant past leaves no trace.
Unmarked by what could have left me phased,
yet still my sweetness and puirty remain unerased.
Never losing sight of these qualities of mine,
for I know like a beacon I will FOREVER SHINE!!!
