A troubled soul mine has been,
For the past year much has conflicted within,
I was left wandering in a foreign land,
My steady life shattered and shifted into one unplanned,
The tragic split between two hearts,
Left me without a desire for new starts.
A future with the boy I loved I thought I had,
Apart we fell leaving me with a tattered heart thought to be forever sad,
Though this occurrence rocked me to my core,
Little did I know it opened up another door,
Alone I was able to mature and grow,
A confidence in myself I now know.
Regardless of the pain that still lives in my heart,
Stronger I am becoming during our time apart,
Together one day I hope we will still be,
But for now I will strive to deepen my roots as a tree,
For the deeper I travel, the more I’ll learn,
And one day we will be better when we return.
In my heart I find a passion to give,
And to help others feel the quality of love I will live,
For there is more to life than the pain,
So I will look ahead and break free of this chain,
While in this time of wait, my purpose I will embrace,
All along the way finding myself and accepting grace.
