My truth. My life.

My choice

I am making a choice.

Right here, right now.

A choice to be strong.

I am going to be wise

in my decisions.

Forgiving the past is

my first step to

reclaim my life.

Never forgetting all of

the trials and tribulations

that I have been through to

get me where I am today.

It’s time for me to stand up

and be the person that I

deserve to be.

    I love the declaration of strength! The fulfillment of self. Well done!

  2. This poem’s content and message just makes me want to stand up and applaud! YAY! Choose, choice, such positive decisions you describe and yes, I believe (without even knowing you) that you DO deserve to be — to be strong, to be wise, to be forgiving, to reclaim that person you are, maybe have always been. (and btw I am not just “being kind” to you LOL I just like encouraging what I see in others through their words, gifts, and talents) Keep writing, I’ll keep reading 🙂

    • Thank you so much! Your encouraging words mean more to me than you know. I love to write. The fact that someone likes to read what I write, makes it even better.

  3. C’est le bon choix que tu fais.

  4. Powerful. It could be a poster.

  5. Well said..! I like the not forgetting the trials and tribulations.. they do make us who we are!

  6. Hear, hear…. Let’s all do that, and enjoy being our own unique little selves…! 😉

  10. Excellent! Something we should all live by.

  11. I like this because it highlights the choices we have which control the direction of our lives (and, in turn, who we are to become.)

  12. A very positive start to the day. Lovely – well done.

  13. Having strength – realising what we have done, or what others have done and standing up for ourselves – Very very good Bo.

  14. *applause* What we endure makes us who we are.

    my first step to

    reclaim my life.”
