My truth. My life.

And Then I Did…


When you look at me you see what I want you to see.

I have gotten so good at covering up my

pain and bitterness with a

perfected smile.


When I look at me I see a shell of myself.  I have

been drained of my hope and depleted

of my significance.


No more.

I will begin to build my life again from scratch.  I am

 determined to feel good about being me. I

will be proud of what I accomplish

in my life.


Life is an opportunity.  I am the only person that

can make the choice to live.


This is for : 100 word song

This weeks song is :  Nina Simone – Feeling Good
