Finding Myself

BY JASMIN BLEDSOE

Hell hath no fury..

Greater than the times my life was weary.

Born into sin..

When will I live again.

The day that I lost myself is the day that I found me.

The greatest gift ever was redemption.

It didn’t matter that I was illegitimate.

My past, before, I constantly tried to get rid of it.

 

I wanted to disappear at one point.

Because I didn’t turn to liquor or smoke a joint.

I had no escape.

There was no superhero clothe in a cape.

I was trapped in my mind.

I desperately wanted to leave the bad things behind.

I wanted to become blind.

Have just a portion of some peace of mind.

 

It drove me to the point of questioning my existence.

The bad times why were they so persistent.

Until one day I decided to take an initiative.

If I wanted a change, I had to rearrange.

My thoughts.

The things that I accept.

What I believed.

All negative things would have to leave.

 

There would have to be a sacrifice.

Because finding yourself is about killing your old self.

It's about working on becoming the best you.

Finding yourself is learning to love you completely.

I didn't use to..but now I know.

No one will ever love me if I don't display love for myself.

Never again will I sell myself short.

Thank God I finally know my worth.
