I was surrounded by flames.
I was trapped.
I was so scared.
I was damaged in all ways.
I was lied about.
And lied to.
Until one day –
I found my voice.
I stood on solid ground.
I discovered my worth.
I decided to live my truth.
I walked away.
I began to thrive.
And still –
I wish no ill.
The best revenge
is not seeking revenge.
And the best part
is by walking away
I found the strength
that was needed
to grow
and seek out
what I need
to finally
be healed.
