I’m cutting off all the toxic things from my life.
I’m extracting this illness from my soul.
I’m brushing away at all the dusty corners of my mind.
I’m clearing past the grey veil that surrounds my heart.
I’m opening myself up for something better,
For I’m sure that even I deserve that.
It’s me before the rest,
I hope you understand that.
I choose me above anything else.
There is more to me than the skin I take shelter in,
And there is more to me than my faults and torn up edges.
Why couldn’t you see that?
Why can’t I see that?
As let go of what use to be
and make space for what
would eventually become.
