Your hands traced the path of the woman I became.
Reluctantly saying “no”, I’ve come to easily point out the looks of carelessness,
As we compared souls I learned some relationships are one sided
Pitifully looked upon, I saw not everyone is there for you when needed
Insistent, the nudge you gave me was for greatness
Straightforwardly you showed how all doors could be opened even when they shouldn’t be
The moment I froze, you taught me the world kept going.
The flame you had was ablaze, confidence off the charts
And I learned my vulnerability should be hidden before taken advantage of
Until I saw, that blood spilt only mattered if it was mine
Guided to understand, I had everything because I was alive
Hell only rose when I disobeyed my parents
That glass anyone breaks will never be repaired.
Mistakenly taught women are always to blame and
Even you understood how suicide is never the answer.
Lets just forgive & forget, see that revenge never fills, & remember
“It takes two,”
Fore despite everything, you never taught me peace,
Everlasting thanks for the lessons you gave me.
