I made a promise, a pledge
to my broken self
Overshadowed by sadness
I got lost in my journey of life
But now I have a map
to help me find my way
To my final destination
To my final success

I promised myself:
that I won't find happiness
from the number on that scale
or the inches of my waistline
and the protruding hipbones

that I won't hold myself down
and degrade myself
by waiting for that guy
who isn't able to come

that I will not worry
about people's impulsive judgments
and let my mind
wander around their opinions

I see things clearly now
it's like waking up from a deep sleep
to find that your aspect of life
had changed completely

No more will I feel
Trapped, tangled, torn up, and tired
I will not allow myself
to remain uninspired

I will manifest
my determination, diligence, and dedication
From now on I won't hold back
I'll give my everything without hesitation

Dear self,
you can trust me on this
Depend on yourself now
because I promised

This is my first time submitting a writing piece... It was 5AM in the morning and I began just thinking about my life in general.
