More than just one emotion.
Unquestionably, the truth was and is,
Liberating me, but at times my existence feels like a quiz.
Like many, I am a work in progress,
And still learning how to play this game of “Chess.”
The ghost of rejection still lingers,
There are moments, I can’t even feel my fingers.
Healing is taking place,
But at times it feels so slow and that makes me feel out-of-place.
My story is riddled with innumerable memories,
Such painful memories of untold stories.
Grievous losses happened and that…….
Almost pushed me to the edge of insanity, but…….
If only you knew my story,
If only you could see how I was able to carry,
Would you reject me?
Or would you be able to see pass my past plea?
