    I’ve cried pools of tears to every sad song

    Waded in misery that streamed rivers long

    So long that it made me have to grow strong

    Wary of retreating back to those avenues of wrong

    Just the way you’ve approach reveals your intentions

    And the moment has passed for those predilections

    For in the bottom of the well I caught my reflection

    Discovered my proper purpose and divine definition

    And shirking this responsibility is a notion I must refuse

    For I can’t continue to claim to be chaotically confused

    Standing passive as my temple is relentlessly abused

    To keep you utterly entertained & perpetually amused

    The days of crushed esteem are completely finished

    Your controlling hold has been forever diminished

    As our fire of destruction has been extinguished

    And all soul connections have been relinquished

    Although from your presence, I walk away posthaste

    I am not departing with any kind of bitter aftertaste

    For you were an essential & enlightening flavor to taste

    Seeing that you caused me to cease an existence of waste

    ahhh....the..."taking responsibility for me," poem.
    standing up for the wrongs you've worn
    distancing yourself from bad choices made
    getting up from the bed you've laid
    to confront tomorrow's wonderful beginnings
    loving the feel of hope...and winning.

    just saying...


    *starting anew*

    Been there/done that of the entire poem, but LOVE the ending of 'this is a learning experience and without your punk self/mucked up self/winner-loser instead of my win-win self....' I wouldn't have met my BETTER self. Not so much sad, but wiser, I move on.

    You bad, sista! :thumbsup:

    My my my !!!
    this right here was like reading me

    when you had enough, making change
    awaken from the sadness , leave no bitterness
    you rise , you rise above to carry on....

    I love this to the fullest
