    10 parts rejection
    10 parts lonely
    4 parts boredom
    steeped in apathy
    makes you forget to strive
    clouds your ability to see

    7 parts fear
    10 parts lack of self-belief
    5 parts hesitancy
    several dashes of grief
    turns you into your own victim
    the real you can't speak

    9 parts old patterns
    10 parts old pain
    10 parts being haunted
    marinated in the same old refrains
    makes you a prisoner
    locked in homemade chains

    7 parts people you can't count on
    7 parts of the nasty
    7 parts of those who don't care about you
    a couple teaspoons of the crafty
    then you're fighting anger and cynicism
    disappointment takes you out of your rhythm

    20 parts courage
    20 parts self-love
    20 parts strength
    conjoined in the light from above
    makes you keep going
    makes you never stop

    Sister, this was quite original...
    what I found most inspiring was
    that no matter the measurement
    for the negative aspects of life and
    relationships...the inner strength
    still amounted to more than any
    other part...

    this piece is 100parts...wonderful!
    Thanks for the read!
