My truth. My life.

Begin to break


Courage needs to be more than an idea.

When I start to conform to the life that has been dealt to me

I find myself begin to suffocate.

It’s not easy to break the glass I have let encompass me.

The air that fills my lungs from the inside becomes stagnate.

The pressure becomes overwhelming.

Courage needs to become my reality.

I must fight to break free of the anguish I have

allowed to beset my life.

It’s time to claim my vitality.

I will, very soon, take that first breath of clean air as the

glass that has surrounded me for so many years begins to crack.
