The greatest truth in life is that those you love, cherish or simply trust the most are irrevocably destined to break you the most.


Fire burning deep in my heart—
pain upper-cutting into my side—
I step away.
I take a deep breath…
ignore the shadows…
and continue on my way.

Those things going bump in the night
Don’t scare me anymore.
Just like our break-up
doesn’t hurt anymore.
I’m not three—
or thirteen—
I’m just moving along.

Because while I do have fears—
and thinking of you still stings—
I’ll move past this.
Yes, I’m hurting—
but I’ll survive and out-live the pain, too.

I’ll laugh my fears in the face—
laugh YOU in the face—
and continue on my way…
FEARLESS.
