I've been taught to forgive, will my heart ever truly believe my words?


As the water crashes around me,
I begin to forget what once was.

Water fills my hatred with love,
Brings my life meaning,
Just like you once did.

Makes me feel free,
Tells me its okay to let go,
And to turn to you for guidance.

Who I once was doesn’t matter,
Who I am now does.

As my hair hits the water,
I let it in to be a part of me.
The one I want to be,
The one I need to be.

I feel free to be me,
As I push deeper the easier it gets.
To let go of everything,
The walls I built,
The mistakes I made,
The life I lead,
I go for what I want.

I know everything will be alright,
I’m home again.

The place I never want to leave,
But I know I will always be dragged out.
My life is no longer there,
It’s here where I belong.

Stop judging the girl you used to see,
just look at who I have become.
I’m stronger now more than ever,
I rely on myself now just like you taught me.

So just let me go
I don’t belong here
Just let me go for awhile,
Let me lead.
I’m not scared anymore,
I’m not a child that needs to be told,
I’m not a little girl anymore,
Just let me go for now.

Let me choose what I want
I know what’s best for me,
I always will you are no longer it,
Just let me go and let’s say goodbye for now.
I’ll be back soon,
I promise.

Thanks I really like writing poetry, I tend to write my poems easily to connect with but a little hard to actually get what i am saying a lot.

"Water fills my hatred with love, Brings my life meaning," my favorite, I really like the style and tone which it was written in, somehow I don't really get it, but I still think it's beautiful, I don't think I could have done better !
