No Longer Bruised
Abandoning my every fear as I learn to reach out,
taking that important step as I banish every doubt.
I ever held believing my love would never be reciprocated,
sinking further and further into sadness as I waited.
But as my true colours shine through my pain,
I realise it't the right time to start again.
Promising myself that pain won't bring me down anymore,
so I wait patiently in the hall of 'let me adore'.
The wonder which is me for I know someone to love me is out there,
ready to stumble, fall for me and care.
So I open my heart a little more wide,
never losing sight of my self-esteem and pride.
Loving all that I am with each passing day,
proud of who I aspire to be knowing that it's okay.
That I am alone as it is better than being sad,
remaining in a relationship where they treat me bad.
For I deserve more than that and I know in my heart,
now is the perfect time to make a new start.
So I climb this ladder passing by the snake,
vowing to myself that not so easily will I forsake.
The fragile part of me that has became strong,
admitting that what I thought was love was wrong.
Looking back I see my trust so many times abused,
but I am the bigger person still standing as I'm NO LONGER BRUISED!!!
